    Repressed scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne has two skills: reading dead languages and hiding in his office at the Ladysmith Museum. After the tragic death of the friend he secretly loved, he's ruthlessly suppressed any desire for another man. So when handsome ex-Pinkerton Griffin Flaherty approaches him to translate a mysterious book, Whyborne wants to finish the job and get rid of the detective as quickly as possible. Griffin left the Pinkertons following the death of his partner, hoping to start a new life. But the powerful cult that murdered Glenn has taken root in Widdershins, and only the spells in the book can stop them.

    R. Wilson says: "Gripping Erotic Suspense, Seductive Narrator!"
    "Exciting story with great narration!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Widdershins the most enjoyable?

    The story is set in the late 1800s. The period details and manner of personal behavior and speech really brought the story to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Widdershins?

    The events of the evening that brought Griffin and Whyborne together are the most memorable for me.


    Which character – as performed by Julian G. Simmons – was your favorite?

    Definitely Whyborne. The narration fit the character of Whyborne perfectly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Unimaginable horrors create unlikely heroes.


    Any additional comments?

    The lead characters have weaknesses they must overcome. Whyborne and Griffin must take charge of their lives in ways they never imagined. They have to fight personal and real demons under the burdens of Victorian-period decorum.
