Langley Hall – modern ghost story

23-year-old addict Laura Mortlock has just killed her sadistic minder with a bottle of Smirnoff, when she discovers she’s inherited Langley Hall. Located on Dartmoor, the old house has a dark history of slavery and witchcraft. 23-year-old addict Laura Mortlock has just killed her sadistic minder with a bottle of Smirnoff, when she discovers she’s inherited Langley Hall. Located on Dartmoor, the old house has a dark history of slavery and witchcraft. As events unfold, Laura discovers that history is replaying, and she and her new friends are at the centre. Laura’s pregnant, and the reincarnated lord and lady of Langley Hall want her unborn child. Only Laura’s determination, obdurate housekeeper Mrs Gibby, and the Witchfinder can save her.

Ghost story Langley Hall is a tribute to the writings of MR James and Daphne du Maurier, combining the classic ingredients of M.R. James with the romantic, intense style of Du Maurier. The novel has a contemporary setting, whilst creating a sense of isolation evoking the 1930’s.
