Unfortunately The Insane Seldom Do What Is Expected Of Them.”
When Dr. John Watson receives an invitation for him and his assistant Jack Hudson to spend Christmas at Creighton Hall in Somerset, his first reaction is to refuse. Watson first met Col.
Alexander Creighton in Afghanistan and the memory is not a good one. However Watson is Godfather to Creighton and Lady Evelyn’s daughter Constance, a fledgling opera singer, and for
her sake Watson and Jack set out for the wild west.
On the train they meet Constable Will Maddox who has had a wasted journey to Taunton asking for more men to help him deal with reports of some strange creature on the moor. Jack is
intrigued, but Watson wants a quiet Christmas.
At Creighton Hall, they meet Alexander Creighton and his mysterious household, whilst out on the moor a lunatic has escaped from the nearby asylum and poor Will Maddox has his work cut
out in trying to capture two wild creatures. Strange things are happening at Creighton Hall; who exactly is Mr. Mirchandani the enigmatic Indian House Steward? What secret is Mrs. Danby the Housekeeper keeping? And what has happened to Walter Goodman, the missing Footmen? One thing’s for sure; Watson and Jack are not in for a quiet Christmas.
