‘The Caretaker’ By Manolis Karavidas

When a person stops making contact with everyone close to them and abandons their job, people might assume something has gone horribly wrong. But what happens when that persons is alive and well, simply refusing to leave their home, instead shutting themselves out for no apparent reason?

That is what private investigator James Conway is hired to investigate, when a man becomes worried about his brother who has suddenly decided to ignore life completely. As Conway delves deeper and deeper into the case, he uncovers secrets and sinister plots which he would have never thought possible on such a small and, seemingly, easy case.

Follow the clues along with Conway and bring the truth to the surface.
