The Leaping

The Leaping Synopsis

An astonishing and innovative blend of horror, folktale and disturbing realism, The Leaping is the first instalment in what is shaping up to be a genre-defining series. Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful - and rich - Jennifer comes into his life, he thinks he might have finally found his ticket out of there. The only problem? His boss is interested in Jennifer as well, and there's something strangely bestial about him . . . So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion out in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control, Jennifer and Jack face the terrifying possibility that not all the guests may be human - and some of them want to feed.
