    It’s the end of October and the Sanford Third Age Club are on one of their outings, this time to York, with an overnight stay in the haunted Palmer Hotel.

    As the witching hour approaches, things begin to happen. A valuable necklace goes missing and a guest is found dead. Joe Murray and his constant companions Sheila Riley and Brenda Jump are in the thick of it once more.

    What is arrogant MP, Edgar Prudhoe, up to? How much does his prospective son-in-law, Callum McGuire, hate him? Is Deirdre Prudhoe really as drunk as she appears? What is the history behind Yvonne Naylor’s mangled hand? And where does Geoff Vallance fit into it all?

    With Linda Ellis and Rick Hart orchestrating ghostly goings on at The Old Inn, the puzzle is cranked up several notches when one of the suspects does a runner and a second body is found.

    A host of suspects. A range of motives. It’s a complex and maddening puzzle for Joe and his chums in this, the third in the STAC Mysteries series. Is the master detective up to it?

    It all adds up to one thing…
