9780140030020: Appleby's End

Appleby's End was the name of the station where Detective-Inspector John Appleby got off the train from Scotland Yard. That could have been a coincidence. but, from then on, coincidences came too often, too fast and too many to be genuine.

Everything that happened related back to stories by Ranulph Raven, a Victorian novelist. Animals were replaced by marble effigies. Someone received a tombstone that told him when he would die. A servant was found buried up to his neck in snow - dead. Even Appleby's End, it turned out, was a story by Ranulph Raven. And why did Ranulph Raven's mysterious descendants make a point of inviting Appleby to spend the night at their house?

Maybe Appleby's End was in sight.
