'Well, what do all mysteries have?' said Aunt Isobel. 'Money, mistresses, and murder.'
An 18th century enigma, and a 1920s crime novelist called Julia Warren who attempts to solve it - and finds herself walking between myth and reality. Cryptic books, puzzling acquaintances, and ancient legends - all interwoven with a haunted piece of land called the Gronny Patch.
Pagan gods don’t walk away just because you stop looking at them. The Gronny Patch sleeps. Perhaps it dreams. Or perhaps not …
A complex, multi-layered story full of whimsy, horror, and mystery, shifting between the centuries until all the threads are finally drawn together by the imperturbable Miss Warren.
