Summary

How can a woman who never existed come back to haunt you?

Gerry Anderson has been having trouble sleeping. He's unwell - bed-bound - and has only his night nurse and his PA for company. But what's really troubling him are the phone calls. Phone calls from a woman claiming to be the 'real' Aubrey. 

But that can't be. Aubrey's just a character Gerry made up in a book, years ago. 

Can Gerry see past the ever-blurring lines of fact and fiction and figure out who is threatening him, or has his long-overdue moment of reckoning finally arrived?

"When you reach for one of her books, you know you will be lost to your world for a bit, and totally immersed in hers." (Daily Mail)
