"But you don't think about these things at the time, do you. You don't think about the man in front of you crossing to your side of the street. Or the wet little pile of cigarette ends outside your front gate in the morning. Or the odd silence in the upstairs flat..."

A chance encounter with an old friend leads recently-unemployed Nick to take a job in the country as a tutor to two young children. The job seems perfect, the family he's working for too good to be true.

But then the stones begin to arrive...

A contemporary gothic mystery in which a splintering present gives way to a murky future.
