Some doors are best left closed…
In Barrington House, an upmarket block in London, there is an empty apartment. No one goes in, no one comes out. And it’s been that way for fifty years. Until the night watchman hears a disturbance after midnight and investigates. What he experiences is enough to change his life forever.
A young American woman, Apryl, arrives at Barrington House. She’s been left an apartment by her mysterious Great Aunt Lillian who died in strange circumstances. Rumours claim Lillian was mad. But her diary suggests she was implicated in a horrific and inexplicable event decades before. A crime now buried in secrecy. But one that haunted her for years and prevented certain residents from ever straying far from the building.
Determined to learn something of this eccentric woman, when Apryl begins to unravel the hidden story of Barrington House, she quickly learns that a transforming, evil still inhabits the building. And her quest leads to the discovery that the doorway to apartment sixteen is a gateway to something altogether more terrifying…
