August Update

The Strange Case of the Barrington Hills Vampire

coming in May, 2020

During the bitter winter of 1896, a series of savage murders plagued the town of Barrington Hills. Mutilated corpses lay buried in the snow, bloody teeth marks on the neck. Animals were found with their insides on full display. The town disintegrated into chaos.

Now, twenty-four years later, it’s happening again.

Detectives Rowan Manory and Walter Williams postpone their holiday to investigate. They encounter crimes so bizarre, so bloodily impossible that even Manory begins to question his sanity. How does the vampire walk through walls? Why doesn’t it leave footprints in the snow? When will it strike next?

      1. “Bigglesworth”, see, is an anagram of “Big Ghost” with a few letters left over as misdirection — so obviously it’s he who’s responsible for the ghostly goings on. I’m wise to your tricks now, Byrnside…the game is on!
