Benni Harper herself is the centre of this mystery, as she receives a strange legacy from a man she doesn’t know. One condition of getting to keep the legacy is to stay in his house for two weeks. Of course, Gabe doesn’t like this, especially when scary things start to happen as the community realised who is in their midst. There’s a protective retired fireman next door, but can he be trusted? And just who is this mystery benefactor with his trail of clues?

Really good – Benni and Gabe’s relationship, threatened again by these events, seems real, and the secondary story about Dove and the other pensioners fighting to save their town museum is a good amusing counterpoint. The best of the series so far, I think!
