CHANNILLO
The Phantoms of Lillicrap Manor
By Joseph Duprey

Series Description:

The hotheaded Hal Baker, middle-aged physics professor and skeptical Bostonian, arrives in England for a guest-lecturing stint at the University of York. This is a temporary gig maneuvered by his daughter to keep him out of her hair as she plans a wedding of which he disapproves. He stays at the ancestral home of his noble British forbears, Lillicrap Manor, which has a name analogous to both the rundown condition of the estate and to the generations of familial dysfunction that has plagued his extended family on both continents. Hal enters into a close, albeit unlikely, friendship with the manor’s only domestic, Christopher, who is the epitome of British protocol and decorum. Together they embark upon a whimsical scheme of strategic ploy mystically mirrored by an alternate scheme having occurred almost a full century beforehand, this one involving Hal’s maternal ancestor, Elizabeth, and her maid.
