Ham House is considered to be one of the haunted houses in Surry, Great Britain, as well as being a historic Jacobean mansion from the 17th Century. Now Belinda and Hazel are invited to the famed home where Hazel will provide some antique pieces to add to the authentic setting and Belinda actually along the way is asked to act a small part.
But the reader is quickly pulled into the palpable tension between producers, directors, actors, actresses and their spouses. The flip and sometimes tawdry jealousies between stars who want to become rich and those who can make or break them becomes drama paralleling the history of Ham House.
Alarm begins to spread when one famous actress collapses and dies and later an actor is found stabbed to death. Belinda and Hazel are drawn into the mystery while Belinda meanwhile has to decide between her recent lover and an older lover from Australia.
Brian Kavanagh continues to be a master of a quick-paced but interesting plot that tenaciously holds the reader's interest to the very taught but satisfying end. Bloody Ham is definitely the best of the whole series he has written.
Well done, indeed, Brian Kavanagh!!!
