A seance in a snowbound Dartmoor house predicts a grisly murder! In a remote house in the middle of Dartmoor, six shadowy figures huddle around a small table for a seance.

3.5 Tajemnica Sittaford
7/10 - BARDZO DOBRA Mój "podejrzany" nie okazał się być mordercą. Szkoda, bo było blisko. Książka niesamowicie wciągnęła, a końcówka w ogóle mną wstrząsnęła. Dawno nie odczuwałam takich emocji po lekturze książki. Tak mi tego brakowało.
