[Formerly Featured/Historical Horror] Masquerading as a gentlemanly bachelor living in Victorian England, Joseph Redding is a fraud amongst the living. After splitting from his partner in unspeakable, underground crimes, he must now pay the price for disturbing the dead.
  
When a ghastly spectre reveals itself to him one night in hospital, he finds himself hurled into an abstract streak of mysteries and homicides that will begin to unravel his fictitious existence.

And it seems everyone is on to him...
  
So begins the sinister fate of Joseph Redding as he is lured down a one-way path of paranormal horror, of secrets, and wanton desire.
