The Priory may be ramshackle in appearance, but Peter, Margaret and Celia, are totally charmed by their newly-inherited country house. But there's more to The Priory than meets the eye.
Left empty for years, hardly a single person has set foot inside and, down in the village, the locals whisper of a ghostly figure that roams the halls... When a murder is committed, tension mounts and suspicions start to fly.
But is their new home really haunted, or is someone trying to scare them away?
Dark secrets, an unexplained death and an old country house lie at the heart of Georgette Heyer's classic crime story.
