Description

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 personal assistant 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?

'As if one of Philip Roth's complicated men stumbled into a razor-sharp Stephen King plot . . . The sharpest, clearest-eyed take on our #metoo reckoning yet. Plus: enthralling.' Megan Abbott
