The Night Visitors

Two women connected by the notorious Gosforth Massacre of 1917, a murder case famous among true-crime fans and internet sleuths, strike up an email conversation and begin an uneasy investigation into their mutual ancestor Hattie Soak, a silent film star who fled the scene of the crime.

The Night Visitors explores ghosts, obsession and inherited evil. In this novella, the technology that connects us becomes the conduit of un-expiated evil in a story told entirely via an exchange of emails.
