  Joseph Redding is the secret. 
  The secret to unbalance the world of the living and the dead if anyone found out who he truly is.
  Masquerading as a gentlemanly bachelor living in Victorian England, his fate is tied to the strange and suspicious Jonathan Corgaine; a young man of unspeakable horrors who pursues the science of death.
  When a ghastly spectre reveals itself to him one night in hospital, he finds himself hurled into an abstract streak of mysteries, horrific homicides and devious decisions that will begin to unravel his fictitious existence.
  And so begins the sinister fate of Joseph Redding as he is lured down a path of paranormal experiences, of secrets, death and wanton desire.
