THE GHOST OF HELLINGAST ASYLUM

Kidnapped children, desperate parents, and an evil spirit out for revenge.

Also on Kindle Unlimited


Murder isn’t always the worst evil…

To Fabian and Nancy, it seemed like the perfect plan.
Kidnap some rich person’s kid and extort a large fee for their safe return, then flee the country to somewhere tropical with poor extradition laws.
Once you had the money, it’s not like you even needed to bother with the ‘return’ bit.
Kidnap three kids at the same time and you’re tripling your money without tripling the effort involved.
However, they didn’t prepare for:

 

A best-selling crime author who knows how criminals think, and will do anything to find her daughter.

 

An entrepreneur with enough money to pay the ransom and dispatch a special forces team to hunt the kidnappers.

 

Three children who would rather effect their own escape instead of waiting for their ransom/rescue.

 

Worst of all, something truly evil lies deep within the bowels of the abandoned asylum they’re using as a hideout, a dormant power, waiting to rise again.

 

All it needs is some sacrifices…

Not all evil can be stopped…
At an isolated location in the Scottish Highlands lies the mansion of Eden Falls. Built by a mysterious, reclusive man who kept his wife and son there as virtual prisoners, it has sat abandoned since the tragic deaths of the entire family. Any who visit are never seen again, and rumours say the place is cursed, haunted by an evil spirit. Keen to make a name for himself in paranormal circles, cocksure Thaddeus Inglehart decides he will be the one to purge Eden Falls of its resident evil. Accompanied by a psychic, a sceptic and a reporter, he believes himself more than capable of dealing with whatever dwells in the old mansion. He was wrong.

 

Eden Falls takes place in the same setting as The Ghost of Hellingast Asylum and features some of the same characters. To receive your free copy in Kindle or ePub format, subscribe to my mailing list HERE.

Ice Rift Series

Ice Rift Series

It all begins in ICE RIFT when NASA satellite scans detect an anomaly lodged deep within a massive ice rift in Antarctica and a small team of environmental scientists are sent to explore the site. They discover an alien ship, buried for thousands of years but still teeming with life. Trapped between a raging blizzard above and a planet's worth of angry, hungry aliens below, the team engage in a desperate fight for survival. Unknown to them all, an ancient intelligence stalks them, looking for its chance at freedom.

 

Do you like monsters? We have monsters!

Ice Rift remains one of my most popular books, and fans tell me part of the appeal is the variety of strange creatures on offer. I've deliberately tried to create aliens that couldn't be portrayed by a person in a suit, which lets me get particularly inventive. The poor humans in this story face monstrous insects, stealthy hunters, and even something they could only think to name 'Corpsetooth.' Why? Well, it's best you experience that for yourself.
Starting with the discovery of a spaceship at the bottom of a huge ice rift in Antarctica by scientists, the four book series takes on a journey of thrilling adventure from Antarctica to Siberia and beyond as those caught up in the alien confrontation attempt to save civilization from the threat they pose to mans existence.

About The Author

Author Ben Hammott

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ben Hammott

Former global adventurer, currently a writer of thrillers, with a mind full of monsters. Ben Hammott is a British author living in England with his human family and more than the average number of cats. Most of his published works fall under the broad category of ‘thriller,’ getting there by way of horror, fantasy or historical mystery. Two of his many novels, ‘Hell Ship: The Flying Dutchman’ and ‘Ice Rift,’ are now available on audio. Though now firmly based back in the UK, he wrote most of his books while travelling across Europe, until a certain global pandemic forced a change of direction. Until that point, he could genuinely style himself as something of an adventurer and explorer, making a few small discoveries and finding his way into locations not seen by the public in decades (including one small misadventure in a dinghy that’s still a sore spot for the person who leant it to him). When he’s not writing, Ben spends his time exploring his passion for resin moulding and 3D printing, and constructing ever more new climbing places for his cats, while insisting to anybody who will listen that he’s not a cat person.
