This is the story of a mysterious woman who runs away to a remote house in Yorkshire. The building is dilapidated and she camps out in its crumbling interior with only a halfwild cat offering her company. Shedoesn't want to communicate with anyone in the village - particularly the inquisitive keeper of the village shop. Any faint stirring of familiarity with the work of another Yorkshire writer is not accidental! Helen Lawrence has a very interesting past and a number of serious gaps in her memory. Gradually we discover what has happened through her life and the demons with which she battles. The Yorkshire Dales make a superb backdrop as Helen runs through them - literally!
The feeling of being hunted plays a large part in her fears. The tension grows and grows until a climax of this hunt is reached in really frightening circumstances.

Sam Baker has written other detective stories but this psychological thriller is in a different vein.
