Thirteen Torland Place was the scene of five terrible murders back in the 19th century, and was also linked to the more recent disappearance of two teenage girls. When a student living in the house is found murdered, DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether her death has anything to do with the house’s grim history.
Then other, similar deaths come to light and he fears a ruthless killer is at work in the ancient Yorkshire city of Eborby; a killer who deprives each victim of one of their five senses. Could the deaths be connected to Obediah Shrowton, an executed murderer whose presence still seems to linger in the house? Or is there a yet more sinister and dangerous explanation?

Excellent British Mystery Author
Eerie, Enthralling, and Twisting
Didn't read with the purpose of IDing most memorable moments, but enjoyed the opening sequence at the party, the oujii board message and the carpet search.
Choose any one of the above three as my favorite. Liked the twist with person who thought he was "Death".
No, just generally enjoyable read (listen)
Ms. Ellis has a number of published mysteries. Would appreciate more available on audio than are available currently. thank you.
