The Mysterious Bookshop

Thomsom, Lesley, Ghost Girl

A year after her father's death, the detective's daughter inherits a strange new case involving a haunting stack of photographs

In a cold day in 1966, 10-year-old Mary Thornton is taking her little brother home from school in time for tea. But that afternoon will change Mary's life forever. She is about to become the only witness to her brother's murder. Only a year after the death of her father, chief superintendent Terry Darnell, his daughter Stella is still reeling from the publicity storm around the case of Kate Rokesmith. But Stella has discovered a folder of unlabeled photographs of deserted streets amongst her father's possessions. And the first photograph in this odd collection dates back to 1966. . .
