Welcome to the mysterious town of Whitby, where all the monsters and demons of old come to retire and live out the remainder of their spooky days and nights and eat fish and chips on the seafront.

Great story expertly read!
Really enjoyed this audio book. The plot is great, very British tongue in cheek gothic horror. Annie Reid does such a fantastic job of reading it in her strong Lancashire accent she just feels perfect for a story set in Whitby. All in all it's like being read a good ghost story by your favorite grandmother, Full of heart and very well written. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!
