    I’m looking for a book (atleast i think it was a book), bout this man that travels alot, but happens to walk by this house, where he meets this beautiful woman; but every night at twelve something happens, she gets killed again and then the next day everything starts again and then at twelve same thing happens. It turns out she was killed by her husband, because he was jealous.
