This psychological drama is a thinking person's Gothic thriller, a dark comedy that is both funny and frightening

On a snowy night, Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase

He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women - Marcy, the beautiful Viennese governess with a past; Mrs. Ravenscroft, the flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian, her charming but possibly demented daughter; Mrs. French, the formidable and passionate cook, and Dolly, a terrified maid

They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick's demise and that of the late Mr Ravenscroft. There are ghosts on the staircase, skeletons in the closet, and much more than the Inspector bargained for

His investigation leads into own tortured soul and the nature of truth itself. You will not guess the ending, but you will be teased, seduced, bewildered, amused, frightened and led to a dark encounter with truth or something even stranger
