Gothic Tale of Trysting & Turning
8 February 2018 | by marthahunterSee all my reviews

Who would ever have thought that an isolated, dark, gothic estate could be such a hot bed of illicit trysts with secret lovers? Aside from the patriarch Dr. Dalton, virtually the entire staff of the mansion are steaming up the windows.

Aside from the frothy soap opera subplots, there are heinous murders being committed off camera. Has the "Hyena of London" come back from the grave?

Without spoiling the ending, there is a minor scifi element revealed in the denoument.
