Have you ever wondered what undiscovered gems lie waiting to be found in your garden?

Lawrence Quilter, a man in a position of power, finds some interesting records amongst his great grandfather’s papers. This leads him to uncover a labyrinth of secret underground caves that have been hidden for decades.

Julie, Lawrence’s long-suffering wife, knows that her husband is an obsessive man with a quirky personality but she stands by him all the same. That is until her husband’s behaviour becomes increasingly worrying and she is forces to reconsider the man she has married.

One moment brings about a tragic chain of events which affects both Lawrence and his wife. This is an exciting and unusual story which takes us into the realms of the frightening as well as the fantastically beautiful and delves into the very depths of human nature.
