Manchester 1895. In the midst of a heatwave, a sinister killer stalks the city. One by one the victims are brought to Arnold Kelley and Daughter – Undertakers of Distinction for their professional services. Sophia Kelley is clairvoyant, and the souls of the victims reach out to her. She experiences visions of their relationship with the killer; she sees their terrible deaths at his hands. In 1888, Jack the Ripper’s victims were all working girls and the Manchester killer is equally selective. He chooses young, middle-class women who are tall, blonde and engaged in professions that in previous decades had been taken by men. Sophia is such a one. Society’s attitude to women is changing and the killer objects.
Sophia is engaged to marry a police sergeant, Nathaniel Roberts, and they each uncover clues to the killer’s identity which do not blend until almost the last moment, when both their lives hang in the balance.

It’s World War One. In a beautiful mansion on a hill, the ghosts of past ages and present nightmares weave coils around a nurse and a soldier. February 1915, the Great War is gathering momentum and Haigh Hall, home of the Earl of Balcarres, has been loaned as an auxiliary hospital. Locals know that the Hall and woods are haunted. Alice Martin returns to her home town to take up her new post as Matron after the sudden and mysterious death of her predecessor. Soldiers with terrible injuries have been sent to recover in the Hall that is surrounded by ancient woodland and wide landscapes. But each soldier brings with him phantoms from the war. Alice finds that one officer draws her attention whilst conflicts are brewing between the Hall staff, leading to the greatest danger for one of them.
The atmosphere is charged, and a fearful ghostly presence stalks the passageways of the Hall which stands on the site of much older dwellings. Alice must negotiate on all fronts to ensure the hospital runs well and to do this she enlists the help of her friend, Sophia, a clairvoyant and medium.
