Disturbing. Original. Terrifying. The 'master of horror' is back with the chilling tale of what lurks in the walls of an abandoned hospital.
St Philomena's military hospital has been abandoned for over three years. Now Lilian Chesterfield, who works for one of the most successful building companies in England, is in charge of developing it into a luxury housing complex.
But as soon as she and her colleagues started work in the Jacobean-style mansion, their dream turned into a nightmare. They heard screaming from wards full of empty beds. They heard doors slamming and found cutlery scattered over the kitchen floor. Then they saw faces peering at them from the mullioned windows.
Lilian is pragmatic – she doesn't believe in the supernatural. But just when she's put her mind at rest by scouring the mansion from top to bottom and finding nothing, a former patient of St Philomena's arrives with a warning. This hospital may be haunted by something a thousand times more terrifying than ghosts... This hospital may still be haunted by pain.
