"Scarhaven Keep" by J.S. Fletcher

Mystery and intrigue surround Scarhaven, England, when Oliver Bassett is suddenly missing. Mr. Bassett is always punctual, setting an example that everyone notices. The members of his theater company are worried about this unusual event and two men (Copplestone and  Stafford) decide to go in search of him, finding his last known stop was in Scarhaven. The people of Scarhaven seem to have secrets, many revolving around the Squire of the town, Marston Greyle. Why doesn't he have contact with his family members and why does he leave them poor? What does he know about Mr. Bassett's disappearance? Mary Wooler, landlady at the Admiral's Arms may have some important information. So might Audrey Greyle, but will telling it put her in danger?
