There's been a growing sense of dread in the town of Stonehurst with some unexplained disappearances, and suspicious eyes look toward Wraith Manor on the outskirts of town.
The long since deceased Lord of the Manor was a shipping magnate with a reputation in dealing in artefacts of unusual origin. There was always a shadier side to the vast fortune amassed by the family now in its last generation and ruled by an aging but ever imposing, Lady Eleanor Wraith.
Nathan Highmore has been requested to investigate the series of disappearances throughout the town. Rumours around his past have led his peers to believe that he has on occasion crossed the line to get to the core of the matter.
