Publisher's Summary

Whoever said the afterlife would be easy? Noël Coward is the toast of twenties society... a brilliant playwright, composer and entertainer whose witty songs and pithy lines don't quite tell the full story. Goldenhurst, his house in Kent, provides a place where he can be himself. And more importantly where he can be with his lover, Jack, without fear of arrest or judgement. But their romantic idyll is ruined, first by the arrival of Noël's demanding relatives and then by a mysterious death. Many years later, film star and Coward fan Richard Stent buys the house from its current owner. But Richard has problems of his own.
Goldenhurst is supposed to be a respite from all his worries but this is a house with a very rich and not always pleasant history. And more than one thing is about to go bump in the night...
Julian Clary reads his own comic novel - a haunting tale of love, obsession and a house full of spirits, not all of them blithe.

A Real Hidden Gem... Spooky ;-)

I was after something fun and easy after a few heavy reads recently and doing a little investigating this ticked all the boxes, but what I got was all that and more....



The story settings between two different periods really works well, the characters big but realistic and the setting of the "Old Manor" all makes a wonderful listen.



My only cringe was Mr Clary doing the American accent for Jack but apart from that I was a little sad when I finished it which is always a good sign....



Recommended!

Good Fun

Don't be put off by the book cover which undermines the excellent plot and bears no relevance to the story. Listened to audiobook which is hugely entertaining. As well as the excellent comedy and laugh out loud repartee, there is great suspense, drama and mystery. A great listen.
