The Old House By The Woods

When martial arts expert, ex-police officer, and private detective extraordinaire Ria Robertson is hired by Eve to investigate unexplained paranormal activities and mysterious occurrences in her newly bought home, Ria can’t wait to solve the mystery of the century-old haunted house surrounded by a dark, ominous forest in Mistgrove.

Joined by Jenny and Andy – her teenage sister and best friend – and the last words of a dying man, they set out to uncover the secrets of the creepy, old, haunted house. Little do they know that a mysterious killer is on the loose and that no one is safe in the old house by the woods. Soon they walk into a fast-paced murder mystery and cold case investigation, tangled with hidden clues, frightening beast, and imminent danger.

Running against time, will the crime-solving trio be able to solve the mystery behind the strange paranormal occurrences and save everyone from a criminal conspiracy far more dangerous than they could have ever imagined? Can they dodge the beast lurking in the woods and the serial killer targeting people in the haunted house long enough to figure out who (or what) is behind the unsolved murders?

The Old House by the Woods is a vibrantly illustrated, thrill-packed YA Mystery book with twists and turns ideal for readers who love classic “whodunit” mysteries, gut-gripping thrillers, and daring adventures.
