A sad story of cruelty in high places gives a chilling history lesson about the power of the rich over the life and death of the poor. Sir Robert is a bad tempered master who lashes out at his servants with frightening regularity. When his violence gets out of hand, he kills Roger his stable boy. Although he escapes justice, he and even his castle after his death are haunted by Roger’s unforgiving ghost. Terry Deary’s stories make the past come alive.
