SILENT AS THE GRAVE Bill Kitson
When Adam Bailey agrees to spend Christmas at Mulgrave Castle, he knows there is an ulterior motive behind the invitation. His old flame, Harriet, and her husband, Sir Anthony Rowe, want him to investigate the legend of an old family curse said to have claimed several victims amongst Sir Anthony’s ancestors. If there is any truth in the tales of inherited insanity, it may be due to strike again. Once the house guests are assembled, heavy snow cuts the castle off from the outside world. When they sit down for breakfast on Christmas morning, none of them is aware that the curse has already claimed a new victim.

HER LADYSHIP’S GIRL Anwyn Moyle
Anwyn Moyle was born in 1918 in a poor Welsh mining village. At the age of sixteen she was sent to London to work as a scullery maid. Her long days of domestic service began at 5 a.m., cleaning grates and lighting fires, then she would scrub floors and polish the house – all for two shillings a week. Things improved when Anwyn secured the position of lady’s maid in Belgravia and learned to negotiate the social mores of the privileged classes and keep quiet about her mistress’s affairs. She went on to be a proficient cook, keeping a detailed diary of the fine foods that were served `upstairs`.
