As Lord Fetchford prepares for the journey, he sends his butler ahead to open the house up. For Mr. Lawrence, the journey brings mixed feelings. He has a deep connection to Aldburn Park, and to its history, but he also remembers the night when the house was finally sealed. And although he is not a man who believes in ghosts, Mr. Lawrence cannot shake a sense of unease as he arrives – all alone – at the door to the great house.
What really happened on the night that Aldburn Park was abandoned? Where did Lady Catherine go after she was last seen? Was there a face at the window as Mr. Lawrence and his employer drove away? And what really lurks in the shadows as Lord Fetchford finally returns to face the consequences of his actions?
