The Old House By The Woods Paperback – 18 January 2021
Enhance your purchase
A fast-paced, thrilling, and visually captivating mystery book for all mystery lovers!
"The maid called the police, who launched an official investigation[…] The investigation concluded – Death by an unknown animal."
When martial arts expert, an ex-police officer, and private detective extraordinaire Ria Robertson is hired by Eve to investigate unexplained paranormal activities and mysterious occurrences in her newly bought home, Ria can't wait to solve the mystery of the century-old haunted house surrounded by a dark, ominous forest in Mistgrove.
Joined by Jenny and Andy - her teenage sister and best friend - and the last words of a dying man, they set out to uncover the secrets of the creepy, old, haunted house. Little do they know that a mysterious killer is on the loose and that no one is safe in the old house by the woods. Soon they walk into a fast-paced murder mystery and cold case investigation, tangled with hidden clues, frightening beast, and imminent danger.
Running against time, will the crime-solving trio be able to solve the mystery behind the strange paranormal occurrences and save everyone from a criminal conspiracy far more dangerous than they could have ever imagined? Can they dodge the beast lurking in the woods and the serial killer targeting people in the haunted house long enough to figure out who (or what) is behind the unsolved murders?
The Old House by the Woods is a vibrantly illustrated, thrill-packed YA Mystery book with twists and turns ideal for readers who love classic “whodunit” mysteries, gut-gripping thrillers, and daring adventures.

I absolutely loved the inclusion of the coloured illustrations. They are beautifully done and of an extremely high quality. It is a noteworthy and distinguishing factor that makes this book stand out from others in the same young adult mystery genre. The author’s style of prose holds a natural charm, and the secretive way in which she lets the story unfold keeps you turning the pages and not wanting to put the book down! The character development is wonderfully done, and the variety of personas presented helps grip your attention thoroughly. I particularly enjoyed how well thought out the storyline was, and how the images so accurately portray what the author is saying.
In conclusion, I would say it is an absolute joy to read! The fascinating twists and turns serve to activate your imagination, as you strive to solve the puzzle yourself before all is revealed. It most certainly keeps you entertained from start to finish! This is a well-crafted whodunnit that I highly recommend reading, and I hope to read more Ria Robertson mysteries in the near future!
Definitely a great book for both children and adults alike.
Also, I must mention how important the represention is. Growing up we hardly had strong female characters to look upto. I'm glad children today have such books available to them.
I loved the way author created element of suspense throughout the story and the end really blew my mind. It was fantastic . Really loved it! The author was giving the information as and when needed. As a reader , I kept guessing who could be the villain of the story but I reached nowhere. I loved the way author narrated and executed the whole story.
The illustrations (sketches) in the book were like cherry on the cake for me. Special appreciations for the sketches. They aided the visualization of the reader.
I feel the book can be made into a movie or a part of web series. Waiting eagerly for more such mysteries to be solved by Ria Robertson. Request the author to keep adding to this series.
If you are someone who loves mystery solving , then you would love this book for sure. Happy Reading!
