The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward

Award-winning writer/director Julian Simpson creates an HP Lovecraft-inspired universe through the prism of podcasters Matthew Heawood and Kennedy Fisher.

The story begins with a missing-person investigation; Charles Dexter Ward has vanished from a secure psychiatric hospital in Rhode Island. Two months later his psychiatrist Doctor Willett murders a woman in Highgate, England. Are the two events connected?
