Shadows of the Evening
by Jason Holmwood
England, 1865. Fifteen guests arrive at the estate of one Doctor Elliott, a man that none of them know. When their host does not appear at dinner the guests settle in to wait for the murders to start. But no one is killed. Instead, what unfolds is a bizarre sequence of events tying together the guest’s disparate pasts, overshadowed by the absent doctor and, perhaps, the secret society he serves.
