Ellie is an author suddenly faced with a medically-diagnosed death-sentence. She then begins a journey into her traumatised past and present. She has been accused by her boyfriend of having tried to kill him. This is a haunting, evocative mix of horror, psychological analysis of a possibly psychotic condition, suspense and mystery. We are led into a maelstrom of uncertainty where it’s unsure who or what is responsible for the series of traumatic events. What also stands out is the author’s writing style: taut and intensely expressive.
