Not my favorite, but still witty. Three adult siblings inherit a rambling old house called The Priory, which has a reputation for being haunted. At first they're excited about fixing it up, but pretty soon strange (perhaps ghostly??) goings-on begin to make them nervous. When a murder occurs, they can't help but wonder if there really is a malevolent ghost after all! I didn’t find the mystery as engaging as others, but there's an aunt who occasionally comes out with comments that made me shriek with laughter. She's worth reading the book for.
