Julie, controlled by her fiancé, Kasim, is persuaded by him to visit her ancient Aunt Agatha at her isolated old manor house. Kalim plans to put an end to the aunt in the hopes that Julie will inherit her great wealth and raise him from debt. On arrival, he discovers the Folly, a building rumoured to house a great treasure, but considered inaccessible. Aunt Agatha, quickly recognising Kalim’s intentions, tricks the greedy gold-digger into visiting the Folly via the secret underground tunnel she has found. By candlelight, they pass into the tall structure and learn that Aunt Agatha is not as she seems as she locks them in. Darkness gathers, candles burn out and there, in the centre of the floor, evidence of a past murder lurks, threatening destruction and death.

About the Author
Writing since I could hold a pencil, I've always been fascinated by words and their power to entertain, transform, educate, illuminate, and influence. Stories are fundamental to human beings; they form an essential part of our psyche. It's an honour to be privileged to tell my own versions of tales that have abounded for millennia. Born in Hull, England, in 1948, I had my first writing published as illustrated articles for the British photographic press at age 19. I stilll take photographs in a semi-professional capacity. I have 8 published novels, a science fiction novella, a self-help guide to ME/CFS, and several anthologies. My fiction started with a radio play, Hitch Hiker, broadcast by BBC Radio 4 in the 1970s. My short stories have been published and have been prizewinners in competitions. I'm married to a charming, intelligent and lovely lady who proof-reads my work. We have a daughter who, at the time of writing, is working in Australia.
