He is, therefore, at a loss when forced into taking leave after his recent tussle with a ‘shadow creature’, a case that has yet to be fully resolved. Anne Travers is tired of the loss burning in her heart. So when Lethbridge-Stewart is called to Glencross to help the son of an old friend, she insists on going with him.A Very Private Haunting, the latest adventure for a younger Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, is now available for pre-order from Candy Jar Books.
In Glencross, young Tomas Campbell has gone missing, and his friends band together to uncover the dark secret at the heart of the village. Meanwhile, Arthur Penrose had returned to his ancestral home to find a haunted residence, and a doll with a message.
What connects the doll to the strange sounds that scurry around Penrose Manor, why do the adults of Glencross seem so intent on keeping their children from leaving the village, and what has all this got to do with the ‘shadow creature’? It is up the Lethbridge-Stewart and Anne to find out.
This special edition includes an extended version of Sharon Bidwell’s short story, The Wishing Bazaar.
This is the first volume of the fifth series of on-going Lethbridge-Stewart novels, and will be followed by The Man from Yesterday and The New Unusual.
