"Cleverly creepy, well-written and well-researched, this is a delightful spine-tingler and a great read." (The Sunday Tasmanian)

"Well written children's story"
A very well written story, and equally well performed. It drew me in and kept me listening to find out the truth behind the mystery. Unlike many ghost stories, the ending did not seem rushed or cobbled together. Many mysteries spend so long building up the drama, but then seem unable to reach a conclusion effectively.
