Carole Marsh Mystery Series

Real Kids! Real Places!

The Mystery of Biltmore House

In 1981, Carole Marsh (a real writer) took four real kids on a visit to the famous Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. They went to learn about George W. Vanderbilt; the Victorian Era, O. Henry and more. There was only one little problem... First one kid disappeared. Then another! Then, so did a priceless antique chess set! There was the creepy Halloween room, the very scary basement, the eerie attic, and all those gape-mouthed gargoyles. Oh yeah, and all that blood! And did I say that the kids got trapped in a mile-long heating system? Did I say ONE little problem? How about LOTS of BIG problems! Everyone loves Biltmore House! So much so, that there has been constant demand for a reprint of Carole's most popular book ever! Biltmore's more than one big, giant house; it's one big, giant history lesson!
