Late October 1909, and the season of ghouls and things that go bump in the night has descended on the village of Littleton Cotterell. Lady Hardcastle and her trusted lady's maid, Florence, find themselves hosting a colourful cast of actors whose spooky moving picture, The Witch's Downfall, is being shown to mark Halloween. But things take a macabre turn when the first night's screening ends with a mysterious murder, and the second night with another.One by one the actors turn up dead in ways that eerily echo their film. With the police left scratching their heads, Lady Hardcastle calls upon her amateur sleuthing skills to launch an investigation, with Flo's able assistance. Surrounded by suspects both human and supernatural, Lady Hardcastle must use a little trickery of her own to unmask the murderer.

"Elizabeth Knowelden performs the witty role of Florence Armstrong, lady's maid to the adventurous Lady Hardcastle. As narrator, she captures the panache of this delightful character from 1909 England. The intrepid pair find a new case to investigate when a group of film people who are staying at their home shows a controversial film featuring a witch. Soon the film people are being killed one by one--like the characters in the film. Knowelden handles the creative wordplay throughout the book with deftness and makes listeners giggle at Flo's puns and comments. As the audiobook nears its climax, listeners will find themselves drawn more deeply into the plot and identifying with the women as they face even greater danger.
