Description

A year on from laying the ghost of Catherine Morton to rest, the Morton children and their neighbour, Samuel, still suspect that Dunadd House remains uneasy. As winter closes in again on wild Sherrifmuir, they try to unravel the family secrets one last time, hoping to stop Mrs Morton from selling Dunadd and moving on for good.

As the electricity shuts down, and the phones lines are cut off, Samuel and Fiona discover that history has one more surprise up its sleeve.

The long-awaited sequel to the award-winning Chill, this will not fail to intrigue and enthral readers, who suspected that the story hadn't all been told.
