The Haunted Lady

Reporter-turned-novelist Adam Bailey and his new wife Eve are looking forward to peaceful married life, but that soon evaporates when they get involved in another mysterious investigation. Parishioners are abandoning Reverend Phillips’ church, believing it haunted – could this be something to do with the disappearance of two valuable religious paintings? Meanwhile, the vicar wants to marry his fiancée, Chloe Kershaw, a woman from a prominent local family. But when the couple apply for the necessary paperwork, they discover there is no true record of Chloe’s birth anywhere. Just who is she – and who exactly were her parents? When a local lothario – with links to both the art world and the Kershaws – is murdered, suspicion falls on Chloe’s family. It’s up to Adam and Eve to work out the truth – a task made all the more difficult when they stumble into the murky world of Cold War espionage…

Soon, heavy snow cuts off the castle from the outside world, and the guests become aware that the curse has indeed claimed a new victim – but how? Adam, aided by Harriet’s feisty sister Eve, seeks to discover if the death is linked to the mysterious disappearances that have occurred over the centuries.
