The Mystery of Doe Eyes


Marion died here, didn't she? That's why she haunts us and why she's with us now… and in our dreams, and it's going to get worse.”

Theia is on a mission. Already down on her luck, she returns to her old ways by resorting to the world's oldest profession, but when a client steals her money, she is determined to get it back at all costs. Her only clue lies on a computer file, left behind by her client when he fled – seemingly terrified by someone, or something unknown.

Complications arise when both the ruins of a haunted priory, reminiscent of a tale from childhood told by her adoptive mother long ago, and the ghost of Marion Mackinley, a beautiful Edwardian stage actress, get in her way.

As Theia's troubled past begins to catch up with her, she calls upon her lover, Sam Layton, the renowned psychic medium for help. Together, they are drawn into the ghost's past and become embroiled in her world of espionage, lovers trysts and murder amidst the maelstrom of the First World War.

As events unfold, Layton realises he's out of his depth, and is forced to admit darker forces may be at work...


Set in a hinterland of tidal-creeks, reed-beds and ancient ruins, what lies behind The Mystery of Doe Eyes?

And who – or what, is stalking them when they close their eyes at night and dream?

The Mystery of Doe Eyes is a thrilling paranormal adventure, which will appeal to fans of adult fantasy fiction.
