The Wickford Doom

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

Harry and his mum have just inherited Wickford Hall from his father's family. They know it's a grand house by the sea, but when they arrive, what they find is not what they were expecting.

Soon Harry is drawn into a dark family history, stories of lost children, and the legend of the Wickford Doom - a creepy painting of a demon that would do as you ask if you wish for something bad.

And then there's the door in the wall that runs along the clifftop, a dangerous door that bangs in the night and that Harry is strangely drawn towards…

This is an atmospheric and gripping mystery story with an exciting supernatural twist. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and send shivers down your spine.
