The city of Yorke is in a panic. There's been a murder! Is an ancient ghost-hound called the Barghest on the loose?

ROSE RAVENTHORPE, her friend Orpheus and the secret society of butlers search for clues in the dark, eerie skitterways, on the mist-covered moors, and atop the ancient walls of the city. Rose believes that the villain is human, and she's determined to prove it.

There's no sweeping this crime under the carpet...

I love the evocative atmosphere and the quirky cast of characters. — Parents in Touch
Rose is an excellent detective, I loved the more prominent role Orpheus was able to play in this book, and the butlers were as magnificent as ever. [...] I'm very hopeful this won't be the last I see of Rose, Orpheus and the Silvercrest Hall butlers, as I think this series is super underrated, but if it is, this was an excellent conclusion. — Hounds and Hauntings
This is an excellent addition to the popular genre of historical mysteries for children. Excellently plotted, with realistic and well-rounded characters. — Parents in Touch
