This is the first book in the new Usborne Spinechillers series of original fiction. Packed with thrills and suspense, each creepy tale is densely illustrated with exciting and atmospheric full-color pictures. Clues and red herrings lurk on every page, giving readers the chance to solve the mystery themselves. Strange things are afoot at Twelve Bells End, deep in the heart of the sleep village of Middle-Knight-on Sea. Messages appear on mirrors, sudden icy drafts send a chill through the rooms - and where is the clock that can be heard striking twelve but not seen?
