In April 1940, the ninth Duke of Rutland died in mysterious circumstances in one of the rooms of his family estate, Belvoir Castle. The mystery surrounding these rooms holds the key to a tragic story that is played out on the brutal battlefields of the Western Front and in the exclusive salons of Mayfair and Belgravia in the dying years of la belle époque. Uncovered is a dark and disturbing period in the history of the Rutland family, and one which they were determined to keep hidden for over 60 years. Sixty years on, The Secret Rooms is the true story of family secrets and one man’s determination to keep the past hidden at any cost.
The Secret Rooms : A True Gothic Mystery
I bought this because I really enjoyed her other book Black Diamonds. This book is not nearly so good. There isn't really much of a mystery just a pretty nasty family keeping secrets from each other, using their influence to get out of serving their country in World War 1 and not a likeable character amongst them. It's all a bit thin and really didn't hold my interest.
