It is the roaring twenties – a time of jazz and gin... but a shocking murder has upset the tranquillity of the small town of Arkham, Massachusetts. When the mutilated body of a student is found on the grounds of Miskatonic University, the baffled authorities struggle to determine who – or what – is responsible. When two more students go missing, is it the work of the same killer, or something much darker?
While a Miskatonic professor seeks answers in the ramblings of an insane former colleague, nightmares of a terrifying sunken city plague his most gifted student. Meanwhile, a down-on-his-luck reporter trawls the dark underbelly of the town for clues, and a bootlegger escapes a deal gone horribly wrong in possession of a strange, otherworldly device. Now, these unlikely investigators must come together to face horrors beyond comprehension as they seek answers to a mystery that threatens to destroy all they hold dear.
Ghouls of the Miskatonic is the first novel in The Dark Waters trilogy by New York Times Bestselling author Graham McNeill. Fans of Lovecraftian horror will be devoured by its gripping mystery, and Arkham’s dark legends will continue to haunt the imagination long after the final page is turned.
