The household is managed by her even more eccentric aunt, a situation that leads Tessa to seek the help of one Dr. Segal, a noted Victorian brain specialist. Her innocent enquiries draw her into a bizarre and ultimately horrific sequence of events.

Another of her new acquaintences, budding actress Connie Saunders, warns Tessa against any involvement with Rosen, whom she thinks of as Satan made flesh.
