Cornelius Clarke

Author Cornelius Clarkeabout this book: In the Shadow of the Mill is a book written with an 1970's sensibility. Although set in the present, it was the author's intention to write a Hardy Boys/Secret Seven kind of adventure he grew up with. And having taken his own children to Norfolk on many Summer holidays over the years, he felt that the county perfectly captures the tone of those days of sinister sunshine on TV and in books he soaked up in his youth.

The Norfolk coast, a landscape of beauty. Scarecrows and windmills dot the horizon, masking a past filled with murder and intrigue. Tommy and Sarah, friends from the same street, go on holiday with their mothers to a sleepy village of cobblestones and gas lamps. Across the field at the back of their holiday home stands a derelict windmill - Sefton Mill. The very mention of which sends the locals into a panic. They are warned to stay away from the mill. But Tommy and Sarah are an adventurous pair and so begins a tale of mystery, ghosts, murder and revenge.

Set in and around the wonderfully scenic towns and villages in North Norfolk - Blickling, Wells, Blakeney and Cley, In the Shadow of the Mill is a sinister tale filled with humour, adventure and a skeleton or two!
