Two murders occurred twenty years before Charity Carew arrived at Malmaynes. The murderer was given the name, "the Beast of Malmaynes." It was widely believed that the murderer had leapt to his death before the authorities were able to execute him for his crimes. As Charity became more and more involved emotionally with her boss and idol, the poet, Martin Revesby, she started noticing strange, frightening things happening all around her.
