British Mystery Writer Pat Herbert republishes Haunted Christmas
The Reverend Bernard Paltoquet and his new friend Dr Robbie MacTavish go on a tour of Europe shortly after the war and encounter a mystery in a Bergen forest.
Just why are the ghosts of two little children haunting a fir tree there and just how can the two friends help uncover the mystery surrounding their deaths?
The following Christmas that very tree turns up in the village hall and the ghosts of the children with it. It seems they will not rest until their murderer has been brought to justice and only Bernard and Robbie can help. But, as luck would have it, a new patient of the doctor, Dorothy Plunkett, turns out to be a clairvoyant, and so they set about solving the mystery together.
It is Christmas 1948: the village hall is celebrating, but the ghosts of two little children are haunting the Christmas tree and their restless spirits cast a cloud over proceedings...
Titles in the Reverend Paltoquet Mystery Series are:
The Bockhampton Road Murders
The Possession of November Jones
The Witches of Wandsworth
So Long at the Fair
The Man Who Was Death
The Dark Side of the Mirror
About the Author:
Pat Herbert lives in London, England. She worked as a typist for a publishing company, based in Blackfriars, then trained to become a Chartered Librarian before working for British Gypsum in London’s West End. She was always interested in returning to publishing and took on the job of PA to the Managing Director of Thomson Books, which owned publishers including Hamish Hamilton, Michael Joseph and Sphere at the time, before they were taken over by Penguin.
Since then, Pat worked in recruitment and she is currently working part-time for a private cardiac clinic, and writes during her spare time (with her boss’s permission, of course). She is now writing the next suspenseful novel in the Paltoquet mystery series which is entitled “Sleeping With the Dead”.
Pat loves reading modern crime novels mainly (Peter James, Peter Robinson, Ruth Rendell) and she has an extensive film library. She was brought up in a cinema as her mother was an usherette, and many of her Paltoquet books lend themselves to the big screen.
