But his disciples live on, to spread the cult and corrupt the world.” A young woman on her way to take up a teaching post is offered the hospitality of the sombre Baroness Meinster in her remote castle. But the Baroness has a son, a young man she keeps shackled in his rooms – a young man with a terrifying secret!
