Part 1 :: Terror Comes A-Knocking

What dark deeds unfold on the streets of Arkham? And which unwitting souls - innocent or impure - will succumb to the maddening call... OF CTHULHU? As The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program emerges... screaming and swaddled in a blanket of horror - Steel your hearts for a macabre and delightfully sordid affair called… "The Black Birth".

Meet Sam; a cagey ex-Federal Agent, Deloras; the obsessive book dealer, Hank Jr.; a noble farmboy, Cyril; the smooth-talking jazz man, and Father Grandfather; a mad bible salesman. These five housemates of dubious moral fiber must band together to solve a murder most foul and risk their very sanity as their trail leads them into a realm of nightmares.
