The Madman's Room
Author: Paul Halter, John Pugmire
Format: Kindle Edition
Publishers Weekly says: ‘… brilliantly piles baffling puzzle upon baffling puzzle… richly atmospheric.’ Goodreads writes (of the French version): ‘ highly suspenseful… engrossing and virtually unputdownable… highly recommended.’
The room in Hatton Manor is sealed for a reason. It’s where Harvey Thorne went mad and placed a curse on the family. Now his great-nephew Harris wants to open it up, but his brother Brian, a clairvoyant, warns him against the idea. Harris is the first to perish, but there will be others. Each time, the victim has seen something unimaginable from the doorway and each time there has been a wet patch on the carpet in front of the fireplace. And yet it seems such an ordinary room….
Hurst and Twist are on the trail of one of the most diabolically cunning murderers ever.
