Stone Cold Murders at the Buxton Opera House

Stone Cold Murders - By James Cawood

Starring Nick Barclay and Freya Copeland.

A tense thriller set in deep winter in the English Lake District. Olivia and Robert, owners of the Langstrath Country House Hotel, are enjoying the success of their first season and the respite of the winter break when their solitude is disrupted by the appearance of Ramsay, a lost climber looking for shelter. As the evening unfolds, it becomes apparent that Ramsay’s presence in this desolate spot is anything but a coincidence, and soon events take a murderous turn.
