Quid Est Veritas: The Tynemouth Werewolves

A series of murders take place in the North East town of Tynemouth, bearing the hallmarks of bestial savagery. Even in the 21st century, rumours of werewolves spread and the quiet coastal location is turned into a media circus.

Psychologist Dr.Sylvester McConait, lapsed Catholic and now confirmed atheist, returns to his childhood home to find himself, not only working alongside the police, but also the priesthood.

They are divided by their separate philosophies but united in their search for truth.
