Burial of Ghosts

Twenty-five-year-old Lizzie Bartholomew has had more than her fair share of troubles. Abandoned as a baby, she spent her childhood moving between foster homes.

Then suddenly she receives a letter from a firm of solicitors. Philip Samson has died. In his will, he has left Lizzie a gift of GBP 15000. But there are conditions attached to this unexpected legacy that will soon force Lizzie to confront terrifying ghosts from her own past...
