Viola Hatherley was a writer of ghost stories in the 1890s whose
work lies forgotten until her great-grandson, as a young boy in
Mawson, Australia, learns how to open the secret drawer in his
mother's room. There he finds a manuscript, and from the moment his
mother catches him in the act, Gerard Freeman's life is irrevocably
changed. What is the invisible, ever-present threat from which his
mother strives so obsessively to protect him? And why should
stories written a century ago entwine themselves ever more closely
around events in his own life? Gerard's quest to unveil the mystery
that shrouds his family, and his life, will lead him from Mawson to
London, to a long-abandoned house and the terror of a ghost story
