A hugely entertaining murder mystery-cum-romantic-suspense with a really likeable central character, Lee, and terrific pace. She is a ghost writer working on the biography of an American soap-opera star when strange fires start occurring round her dilapidated house in Notting Hill â€¦.
Although she loves her boyfriend Tommy, Lee is suffering from commitment phobia because, as a ghost-writer, she values her privacy above all elseâ€¦and she canâ€™t bear his mess. At the same time, though, she doesnâ€™t really like living alone in her big, creaky old house in Notting Hill. But whilst Lee is tries to remain in denial about the state of her crumbling home, a neighbour is suddenly killed in a fire, and it looks like arson. Then there is a second fire and a second murder closer to home and Lee finds herself drawn into a murder investigation. As her precious privacy comes under increasing pressure from all sides, could it be that Lee herself is in danger?
