 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
The Investigators are contacted by a friend who is a Doctor. They have a patient who is suffering from extreme muscle spasms for which all the available evidence points to a psychosomatic cause. Visiting the victims flat, the Investigators find, evidence that he has purchased a second-hand car recently. The evidence suggests that a visit to the second-hand car dealer may provide further clues. Careful investigation will reveal that the dealer is a Cultist in league with a small group of ghouls living under the local cemetery. The patient discovered evidence of a victim of the cultist in their car and is the victim of a spell designed to keep him from revealing what he knows.
