4. Carn Euny, Cornwall (setting for Carn Euny in Dirty Girls)

5. Djoser's Pyramid, Saqqara (location of Saddler's party in Passion of Isis)

6. Kabukicho, Tokyo (location for Woe in Kabukicho)

7. Shugborough Hall, Staffordshire (Gardens feature in current WIP)

8. The White House, Aston Munslow (from my current WIP)

9. Castle of Park, Glenluce, Scotland (the castle from Dark Designs)

Oh, I fell in love with one of the Stowe follies! - the triangular one on the top of the hill. Is that the Gothic Temple?

Hmm. Might go there this weekend :-)

I think it probably is, Janine. If so, you can actually hire it as a holiday home.
