A haunted house tour-de-force from the creator of THE MAGNUS ARCHIVES podcast.
A dinner party is held in the penthouse of a multimillion-pound development. All the guests are strangers - even to their host, the billionaire owner of the building
None of them know why they were selected to receive his invitation. Whether privileged or deprived, they share only one thing in common - they've all experienced a shocking disturbance within the building's walls.
By the end of the night, their host is dead, and none of the guests will say what happened. His death has remained one of the biggest unsolved mysteries - until now.
But are you ready for their stories?

Sims really has created an innovative novel where everything falls into place within its thrilling climax. * Fantasy Hive *
A beautifully written contemporary horror novel that I know for sure will leave its mark on me. I don't remember reading anything like this before and it was an absolute delight. * Damp Pebbles Blog *
A book that takes old traditions and gives them a contemporary spin. Happy Halloween, all. * SFF World *
An excellent portmanteau novel. It's an ultra modern take on the haunted house story while each tale mixes in different subgenre flavours from techno-fear and shifting architecture to creepy kids and beyond, all building to a joined up climax that's pleasingly violent and gross. * Den of Geek *
This is an astonishing debut from Jonathan Sims. A wonderful new twist on an age-old genre. 5 out of 5. * SFX *
