A nightmare from a disordered mind.

In this haunted love story Roderick Ford explores the limits of our compassion and the heart’s darkness. Set in a zone at the margins of the monstrous and the human this gothic romance asks what relationships are permissible and who should be denied love.

Will Paulsa and Issy make it to the midnight train in time to escape the labyrinthine city? Or will the bright future that they yearn for be overwhelmed by the dark forces stacked against them?

In this flight of madness not everything is at it seems.
