Government minister Bernard wants to spend the weekend with his mistress Brigitte …
wife Jacqueline, an antiques dealer with a penchant for crashing expensive cars,
wants to spend it with her toy boy Robert …
housekeeper Nana longs for some time to herself away from her employers …
but when each of them returns to the same chic apartment thinking the coast is clear,

a spine-chilling tale of haunting, lust and revenge
from the author of The Woman In White

It is 1831. Widower Stephen Rayburn’s young daughter Lucy runs back to him from the woods
in Kensington Gardens. He can see that she’s frightened. “Is it the dog?” he asks. “It’s not the dog,”
she answers. “It’s the lady ... I think she might be mad!”
The ghostly woman Stephen meets leads him into a web of lust
and revenge that reaches out from beyond the grave.
