Publisher's Summary

In 1902 George Andrew Ryland was hired as a janitor at Highville State Asylum for the Incurable Insane. He intended to keep his head down and work hard, but one particular patient had other plans. Follow along as his grandson combs through 50 years' worth of Ryland's handwritten logs, chronicling his torment at the hands of a beautiful woman with long dark hair and terrible, sinister requests.

Wasn't horrible, wasn't great

The narrators voice initially was irritating but you get used to it. The story could have been better but for a short listen wasn't awful. If you like 'horror' that isn't too scary or gruesome this is a good pick. I personally like darker stories and if I were into softer horror, this would have been perfect.
