Description
An ancient castle, a cash-strapped and psychologically unstable aristocratic couple, and the rumor of ghosts weave together in this sparkling historical mystery from Pearl S. Buck Sir Richard Sedgeley and Lady Mary are broke and without an heir to the castle that's been in their family for centuries. Tourists are infrequent, and the offers they've received are not ones they can live with: a state-run prison or a museum in America. What is the remedy, and is it true that there's treasure hidden somewhere under their noses? Featuring a cast of outsize characters-timid Mary, her possibly mad husband, Wells the Butler, and his mysterious daughter Kate-Death in the Castle is a suspenseful delight by the author of The Good Earth. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author's estate.
