“The surprises and shivers come thick and fast… a real page-turner. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” – Brian Allan, Editor, Phenomena Magazine
Every haunting has a design…
Winter, 1809. Lord Francis Marryman’s wife, Patience, is dying. In the madness of his grief, desperate to keep Patience’s memory alive, he’s compelled to build a memorial in the form of a remote country Hall. But as the plans move forward, Marryman Hall seems to become alive with more than just memories.
Francis, a brilliant mathematician and scholar, has built more into the walls than just bricks and mortar.
Autumn, 2018. Siblings Greg and Lucy Knights, owners of K&K Publishing Company, are seeking a venue to celebrate the 18th anniversary of their company’s inception. At such short notice, there is only one option that still has vacancies: Marryman Hall.
Winter arrives and as heavy snow falls, the guests drop out until a much depleted party of just 6 reach their destination and soon find themselves snowed in. As the guests’ private lives and demons are exposed in the increasingly awkward, claustrophobic atmosphere , the secrets of Marryman Hall and her history are also brought into shocking light from the darkness. In his grief, it’s possible that Lord Francis Marryman may have made a terrible mistake…
The General Theory of Haunting is the perfect ghost story to curl up with on the long winter nights – like Marryman Hall’s guests, you won’t know what’s truly happening until it’s way too late…
