However, as he delves deeper and deeper into the Earl's dark and immoral past, he discovers that not everything is as natural as it should be. Soon be begins to realise that something from the Earl's past, from the Earl's father's life, and from many centuries before them, is following him. Haunting him. Is this spectre real? Or is this simply a plot to undermine him? As George tries to rationalise what is happening to his life, he must decide whether the only rational answer is the irrational.

Thomas H. Brand is a writer and project manager, living and working in London. In his spare time he gets confused as it was so long since he last had any spare time he's not sure what to do with it.
Originally from Hampshire, he now lives in North London with his wife and a one-eyed ginger cat. He finds he spends more and more of his time sitting staring at the computer screen or notebook page. He loves every moment. When he isn't doing that, he can usually be found reading things other people have written instead.
