The Secret of Stranglehold Hall

A Naitabal Mystery

The snowstorm howled as the shadowy figures fought their way up the sloping track. There was a brief respite as they entered the belt of trees, but as soon as they emerged into the open again, their bodies were rocked and battered by the furious blizzard. The taxi driver, barely visible in front of them, suddenly stopped. He pointed and turned, then shouted, but the wind hurried away with his words like a thief.

The Secret of Stranglehold Hall When Charles Criddle built Stranglehold Hall in 1832, he hid a secret within its walls and inside the minds of his seven children. It was to be passed down the generations, to be revealed only if the house itself was in danger.

The seven elderly sisters who now own the house realise that the time has come to unlock the mystery. They soon discover that it cannot possibly be solved by adults alone, so they invite their cousin Jayne and the other Naitabals to help them untangle the puzzle.

But the Naitabals are in deep, deep trouble before they even reach the house. They are forced to pit their wits against a shadowy stranger in a race against time.

"If your own Naitabal hankers for adventure... buy it one of Schutte's Naitabal Mysteries..."
