Roscoe's Leap

Roscoe's Leap

In Stephen's memory, something huge and dark moved suddenly out of the shadows ... someone - himself? - screaming and screaming and screaming ...

Roscoe's Leap is an extraordinary building, part-house and part-bridge. Stephen and Hannah's millionaire ancestor planned it as a lavish home, but now it is decayed and threatening.

For Hannah the house is something that constantly needs mending, and she's great at fixing things like heating systems and furnaces. For Stephen, it represents darker things - terrifying memories that he is trying to forget.

Until a stranger arrives and stirs them up again ...
