He stared up at the dark mass of the house. Then he thought he saw movement in the library window to the right of the drawing room. A shadow moving, backwards and forwards … then it was gone.

Samuel is trapped by huge snow drifts in an old, remote house. And that’s not the only thing causing a cold shiver to creep down his spine. He feels like the ghostly figure in the locked library has a message … but who is it for?

Fiona lives in the big house, but will that help the two of them to break the curse on her family? As the ice sets in, they uncover a centuries-old tale of betrayal and revenge.

Set on bleak Sheriffmuir near Stirling in England, this is a spooky tale of the past returning to haunt the present.
