Description

"It's just a nice weekend, in a nice country inn. Nothing bad is going to happen ."

Ishmael Jones and his partner Penny are attending the re-opening of Tyrone's Castle, an ancient Cornish inn originally built by smugglers. Over dinner that night, the guests entertain one another with ghost stories inspired by local legends and superstitions. But it would appear that the curse of Tyrone's Castle has struck for real when one of their number disappears into thin air. And then another . . .

Is the inn really subject to an ancient curse? Sceptical of ghost stories, Ishmael believes the key to the mystery lies in the present rather than the past. But with no bodies, no evidence and no clues to go on, how can he prove it?

Review quote

Jones is most engaging when he smells blood, and readers will be anxious for a sequel * Publishers Weekly * Lighthearted, supernatural romp. Fans of the British TV series Torchwood will enjoy the irreverent, otherworldly protagonist * Booklist * His (Greens's) first foray into more traditional crime fiction (albeit with an otherworldy flavor) will delight mystery readers, especially those who relish a bit of genre blending * Library Journal, Starred Review *
