About: There is more trouble in store for the Winterbottom family, originally introduced to us in Silas and the Winterbottoms.

Milo, Adele and Isabella’s Uncle Silas is dead, but he’s not gone yet. He haunts them and makes Milo’s life hell, while Milo must hide his reappearance from his cousins.

When another family member is kidnapped, things take a turn for the worse. The three cousins must work together to solve this puzzle.

This story is full of mystery and intrigue, with interesting characters – from a personal maid and pet crocodile to a mysterious doctor and shy cousin – who all but leap from the page to grab the reader.

A unique and suspenseful read for girls and boys alike.

It is possible to read this as a stand-alone novel, but best to read the first book in the series to gain a full understanding of the Winterbottom family history.
