What are the strange, insect-like creatures, with faces like gargoyles, found inside it? And what is the connection with reports of disturbing occurences in the area, dating back centuries? As more inexplicable incidents occur, wild supposition is transformed into astonishing possibility, questioning the very nature of human origin. But with London gripped by chaos and terror, it could be too late to save mankind from its own, extraordinary heritage...
