The Dead Of Winter is about a boy named Michael who’s mother has just died so is sent to live with Sir Stephen, the man whose life was saved by Michael’s father. Michael would rather his father was alive than Sir Stephen. When he gets to Sir Stephen’s house, where he lives with his sister Charlotte and a few servants, he notices things aren’t right. He sees and hears things that shouldn’t be there and, despite what everyone says, something is definitely wrong with Sir Stephen.
I enjoyed reading this book. I’d recommend it to people who like mystery, ghosts and to get a little scared at times. It is filled with suspense. It doesn’t take long to read because it is fairly short and keeps you interested.
