Scary stuff: Peter James publishes new ghost story

The UK’s No.1 best-selling crime author Peter James has today (8th October) published a stand-alone ghost story called The House on Cold Hill.  As with the majority of Peter’s novels, The House on Cold Hill has been inspired by true life events, as Peter himself has lived in two haunted houses. The first, a Georgian manor house that had been formerly a monastery, is on the site of a Roman villa and is the model for Cold Hill House, the chilling location of the story. The story behind this fantastic new novel has recently been covered in The Sunday Times, The Sunday Mirror and the Daily Mail.

About The House on Cold Hill: 

Moving from the centre of the city of Brighton and Hove to the Sussex countryside is a big undertaking for long term townies, Ollie Harcourt, his wife Caro and their twelve year old daughter, Jade.  But when they viewed their new home, an old Georgian mansion, Cold Hill House, they thought it was perfect. Ollie has always wanted to live in the country and feels that it would be good for Jade who loves animals, whilst also being a base for his web design company. Caro is more sceptical.  Before long, they realise that they are not the only ones in the house. There are sightings of an old lady who appears from nowhere and furniture is mysteriously moved.  Gradually the sightings become more sinister and the Harcourts find themselves trapped within the dark history of Cold Hill House with no way of escape.
