Publisher's Summary

Locals claim it is haunted and refuse to put a single toe past the front door, but to siblings Peter, Celia, and Margaret, the Priory is nothing more than a rundown estate inherited from their late uncle, and the perfect setting for a much-needed holiday.
But when a murder victim is discovered in the drafty Priory halls, the once unconcerned trio begins to fear that the ghostly rumours are true and they are not alone after all! With a killer on the loose, will they find themselves the next victims of a supernatural predator, or will they uncover a far more corporeal culprit?

Another great book ruined by terrible reading!

What didn’t you like about Ulli Birvé’s performance?

Terrible English accent - all over the place! This reader's style is hopelessly distracting, making it almost impossible to concentrate on the story.

Great book, grating narrator

Enjoyably tongue in cheek mystery from Georgette Heyer (dare I hope her other mysteries may eventually be released?), mildly spoiled by poor narration - a faint Australian twang, and a scattering of mispronunciations (so far we've had host-ellery instead of hostelry, and deh-sultry instead of desultory.
