The Mist in the Mirror
An inveterate traveller, Sir James Monmouth has spent most of his life abroad. He arrives in England on a dark and rainy night with the intention of discovering more, not only about himself but his obsession with Conrad Vane, an explorer. Warned against following his trail, Sir James experiences some extraordinary happenings - who is the mysterious, sad little boy, and the old woman behind the curtain? And why is it that only he hears the chilling scream and the desperate sobbing? This was my second full length ghost story and a joy to write because I used to many of my favourite settings.. Edwardian London, the river Thames, the old docks, an English country house, the North Yorkshire moors. It also has some of my favourites of my own eccentric characters. I can`t often trace influences on my own books but there’s no doubt that Dickens is in here somewhere. First Published in hardback by Hamish Hamilton 1992. (OP) In paperback by Vintage .
