Peter, Margaret and Celia have inherited The Priory from their Uncle - a ramshackle house that they love for its rambling charm. But there's more to it than is at first apparent. For years, hardly anyone has set foot in the place and even their uncle chose to live far away from it. Local wisdom says the house is haunted, and soon things start to go bump in the night. Then there is a murder - is something supernatural to blame? Or is the explanation much more down to earth? Footsteps in the Dark by Georgette Heyer is a scary but tantalising read.
