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?

Entertaining mystery from the great Georgette
Unlike some other reviewers, I think the narrator did a very fine job. I enjoyed her reading, characterizations, and she has a lovely voice. Having read the book already, I knew the plot, but nevertheless I was kept engaged by the wonderful dialogue.Thank goodness Heyer's mysteries are being made available in unabridged audiobooks!
