Yesterday, Scott was dead.
Today, he’s back.

And Anna doesn’t believe in ghosts.


Scott was Anna’s boyfriend. She loved him, but he ruined her life. When he died, she should have been free, but today Scott is on the radio, threatening to spill her secrets.


Anna is a mother, a wife, and head teacher of a primary school.

And she’s a good liar.


She made one mistake, and now she is having to pay for it. Scott is the only person who knows the truth about her past, but how can he be alive?


Soon, DCI Tom Douglas is going to knock on her door looking for answers. But Anna is already running scared: from the man she loved; the man she watched die; the man who has come back to life.


She has one week to find him. One week to stop him.
