Journeys End is the creepiest house in Peppercorn Valley. And the old ladies who live there have painted weird symbols all over the outside walls.
What could the symbols mean? And is the house haunted and if so, are the old ladies in danger?
Tan has a hunch they are, but this mystery is complicated and she is baffled!
