In the 23rd installment of the bestselling Aunt Dimity
series, a dark and stormy night kicks off a ghost chase in
On a dull and dreary October
day, Lori Shepherd and her husband Bill set off for the
historic town of Rye, on the southeast coast of England, for
a quiet weekend together without the kids. Bill must first
pay a visit to a reclusive client--but after Lori drops him
off, a powerful storm drives her off course and leaves her
stranded in an ancient, rambling inn called The King's
Ransom. When Lori is spooked by ghostly noises in the night,
Aunt Dimity reminds her rather tartly that not all ghosts
intend to harm the living.
But the longer Lori is
stuck at the inn, the stranger things seem. She learns that
the inn was once a hangout for smugglers, and that it's
riddled with secret tunnels the smugglers used to reach a
network of hidden caves. Then there's the inn's cook--a
brawny, gruff ex-con--who seems to have a beef with a
mysterious French guest. Are the noises Lori hears made by
the spirits of long dead smugglers? Or should she be more
worried by the inn's living inhabitants? Joining forces with
her new friend Bishop Wyndham, and guided by Aunt Dimity's
wise counsel, Lori sets out to discover once and for all
who--or what--is haunting The King's Ransom.
