A gothic mystery.
Paranormal investigator James d’Orr is more at home exposing fraudulent mediums in Edwardian London than racing across the windswept moors of the Yorkshire Dales.
But when... More > the young heiress of Arkengarth engages him to investigate a family curse that threatens her sanity and her life, he is plunged into a deadly adventure from which even his extraordinary abilities may not be able to save him.
The first in a series of Jackdaw adventures.
***** "Great read with characters you want to meet again. Fast moving, gripping, great period setting, brilliant descriptions that keep you hooked. Couldn't put it down!"
***** "It's the ultimate page turner, a romping gothic mystery with twists and turns that will tear at your heart in places. But what struck me most is that this is Mr Manthorp's first novel. In fact, he's a masterful and genuinely original writer. I felt a similar excitement reading Gaiman's Neverwhere years ago."< Less
