PALE HOUSE HAS AWOKEN When Dair Lewis receives a call telling him of his estranged mother's death, he must travel back to his childhood home in the far north of Scotland, the sprawling and shadowy Pale House. Drawn into a mystery regarding the circumstances of her passing, Lewis begins to suspect that something is terribly wrong with the house. A secret from the years after he left, and traumatic experiences he'd repressed from earlier in his life, made his former home a place of dread for him - and now the past has come alive within its walls. As Lewis digs deeper, the house calls out to a damaged and twisted figure bent on murder, drawing a monster into its shifting, labyrinthine expanse. Trapped in a dark and living museum of his own worst memories, Lewis must fight to stay alive long enough to discover the truth about the house at the end of Middleshade Road.
