's review

it was amazing

The new Earl of Selchester is due to arrive at the castle in time for Christmas. He is an American and never expected to inherit the title and everything that goes with it. Hugo Hawksworth and his sister Georgia have been lodging at the castle and fear that they will need to find a new home while Hugo continues to carry out top secret government work.

Freya - who has been looking after the castle - has her own secrets to hide and she also fears she will need to find herself a new home. The new Earl's half sister, Sonia has had her nose put out of joint by the discovery of the Earl but she is also descending on the castle for Christmas along with her fiancé and an art expert.

This ill-assorted group of people are also joined by Hugo's Uncle Leo - a Roman Catholic priest and scientist. There are many tensions between the various people gathered at the castle and the stage is set for murder.

Spies, stolen art work, ghosts and plenty of secrets combine to make this an exciting and fast paced read set in the 1950s when everyone is still recovering from World War II. I enjoyed reading this well written mystery from this underrated author and I shall look forward to reading more in this series.
