Into Thin Air: the Shepton Mallet Mystery

Into Thin Air: the Shepton Mallet Mystery
To the end of her days Old Susannah believed that the Devil had come to claim the body and soul of her younger brother. I don't suppose that it was a nice thought for the kindly old lady to have on her mind.

The Aviation Park Festival 2016
