“In a dingy boarding-house in Victorian London, the lonely and destitute Samuel Hakeswille wakes to find that all of his fellow occupants have mysteriously disappeared. In his efforts to discover what befell them, he recounts the year leading up this strange morning, in which he attempted to reach beyond the boundaries of science with the construction of a sinister machine. As he remembers the dark and tragic sequence of events which took him from a comfortable pursuit of research to a psychologically-damaging obsession, he attempts to piece together a solution to the mystery now before him, all whilst living with the terrible knowledge of his dreadful invention – a device which would allow him to hear the voices of the dead.
