Descriere

The sage-like stepfather, Joseph Simpson, used to mollycoddle his stepson, Patrick, who did not care a fig for him. Exhuming Joseph's body after his demise, he was found poisoned to death. Who was the culprit? Somebody was stealing the valuable items from an elderly couple's house umpteenth time. The thief remained invisible leaving the house as spooky. Who was the wrongdoer? Just one day before the release of the award-winning novel, its publisher, Mr Gilbert, was found lying dead. Was it a heart attack? A murder? Or a suicide? A happy reunion between Susan and a UK based university professor after long fifteen years explained the story of Susan's success in her glamorous academic life. When they saw each other again, their true feelings poured out. Dr Robin Roy received a valuable precious heavy gold-coin as a reward for his untimely visit at dead night to a marvellously wealthy royal family. He left a prescription for the woman patient. Surprisingly, on his second visit, he found it a forlorn, dusty vacant house, with that prescription lying there intact. He was shuddered. But his gold-coin is still there in his family. Was it a sleep or a dream? Mystery plays a vital role throughout the book. Readers can skim through all the awful tales. But can they discover clues to unravel the mysteries?
