Author: Clay McLeod Chapman

In 1865, defrauded spiritual medium Alicia Wilkinson is brought to The Ashcroft Hospital at the behest of Dr. John James Templeton. He offers Alicia a second chance to revive her once-thriving career: Perform a séance amongst the patients in order to drawing out their mental maladies. Alicia performs her first series of séances with the patients—including traumatized soldiers returning from the Civil War, women whose sanity has slipped through their fingers—only to realize their sessions might work all too well. What no one knows is Alicia is a fake. A liar. A cheat… So why are the patients suddenly acting possessed? • The author of hit horror novels, Whisper Down the Lane, Ghost Eaters, and others bring his talents to Dark Horse.
