The Ham House Horror
Duchess, Poisoner, Spectre, Spy. James and Alasdair leap back to the English Civil War and meet the two-timing royalist schemer Elizabeth Murray. Her Richmond home is haunted by stories of intrigue, betrayal and ghosts. And a little dog too.
The gloomy pile that is Ham House was Elizabeth’s lifelong passion. Some believe that she never left. Visit Ham and maybe you will hear the old duchess rapping.
(With her cane, on the floor.)
