Overview

A gripping, spooky sequel to THE BLUE LADY

Poor Suzy thought she'd never get over the terrifying events from her time at St Marks, but she's resolved to put all thoughts of ghosts and murders (and school...) behind her as she sets off to stay in her aunt's country estate for the summer. Unfortunately, that quickly looks unlikely. Almost as soon as she arrives Suzy begins to feel watched, and she starts to see strange things. Things like a mysterious grey girl running towards the abandoned boathouse in the dead of the night. Is the girl real - or something altogether more sinister?

Helped by the rather hunky Nate (not that Suzy's letting herself get distracted, of course) Suzy sets out to discover exactly what happened to this girl. She's determined not to let another ghost get the better of her, but she might not have any choice in the matter...

Read an Excerpt

The floorboards creaked beneath my feet as I followed Aunt Meredith past the suit of armour and up the grand flight of stairs. The first floor landing wound around the staircase, framed by a gold-trimmed balcony with marble arches that reached up to the floor above. The staircase then wound up towards the second floor, the floor that I'd be sleeping on. Four corridors led off from the second floor landing, two to the front and two to the rear of the house. Dudley Hall seemed far too big for one family to ever live in, and I could see why it had once been used as a school. There must have been thirty rooms on the first and second floor alone.

I tried to push the thought that the building had once been a school to the back of my mind and lock it away. I'd had enough of boarding schools for a dozen lifetimes. Just the thought of school shoes running up and down those grand stairs made my heart beat a little faster. I imagined the chatter and giggles of schoolgirls, the sound of gossip in the halls and whispering in dormitories after lights out. Memories of my own school began to swirl into my head and conjure up thoughts of the ghosts I was trying so hard to lay to rest.

But Dudley Hall was silent, you could have heard a pin drop.
