Twelve–year–old Cian O’Horgan has recently inherited his great uncle’s gloomy old manor house. On his first visit, a strange blue light, followed by a stifling heat and a foul stench, give Cian the distinctly eerie feeling that the house is haunted. Hair–raising events lead Cian and his fearless younger sister, Jo, on a mission to find out just who or what is spooking the place. Discovering that the house, and those within it, are under an ancient and terrible curse, they realize they must put an end to it. But can Cian and Jo survive the sheer evil force of the ghost of Captain Grimstone, as he fights to reclaim the Celtic treasure?About the Author:
