Hannah is determined to start a new life after her failed marriage, and so moves to Edinburgh and begins a job as a guide to the spooky tourist attraction, Henderson Close. She loves it; the tales she recites, the character she plays, and the disquiet she brings to her guests. All is not as it seems however, as Hannah and her two colleagues soon experience strange occurrences they can’t explain.
The year is 1913 and Adeline Ogilvy makes her way to Vienna, after accepting a career opportunity to transcribe the memoirs of the late Emeryk Quintillus. Rather than being able to settle down and do her work however, strange occurrences draw Adeline’s attention, and soon she finds herself caught in a wicked scheme that involves the wrath of a God.
