Real estate reporter Julia Talben’s life is turned upside down when her family is brutally murdered. However, what seems like an open and close case quickly becomes a much bigger story when she returns to the crime scene to find the murder room deconstructed and physically removed from her sister’s home. This ignites an investigation that eventually leads Julia and her ex-lover Detective Declan Grady to the town of New English where they find the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the Abattoir - a monstrous house stitched together with unending rooms of death and the damned. Julia comes to realize that her sister’s soul is trapped inside, but the Abattoir isn’t just a house - it’s a door to something more evil than anyone could have ever imagined. Julia and Grady are ultimately faced with the question: Who is Jebediah Crone... and what is he building?
