Larry Fernandez is on the staff of the University of South Florida in Tampa , Florida.
His son, David Fernandez, is a home-schooled teenager, who spends much of his

by an unearthly monster, the cursed stone house in Brighton, England is purchased by E. L.
Winthrop, retired general of the British Army, who is at best uncertain of the rumors circulating
about its mysteries.
Everything seems normal during his stay until, one night, he is awakened not by beasts but
rather a bizarre, unearthly humming coming from his cellar, eventually leading him to enlist the
aid of his nephew, Stanley, and Professor of Antiquity Benjamin T. Ogg of Wales, in an attempt
to discover the reasons behind this.
Their journey takes them across the globe, from Europe to South America, Africa, and finally to
India, where they find a most peculiar truth indeed.
