“Hello?”“Is that Roland?”My jaw dropped. That voice, that same breathy, sneaky voice. I gripped the receiver.“Roland?” A giggle rolled – wetly, it seemed – around my ear.I shuddered.

I gripped the receiver.“Roland?” A giggle rolled – wetly, it seemed – around my ear.I shuddered. I said nothing.“I know you’re there, Roland. Don’t pretend you’re not. I know you’re there because I’ve been watching you.”Overworked and underpaid, orphan Roland Goode has been housekeeper at Monmeith since the day he turned eighteen. Slave to miserly Mr Verable and Steven, the old man’s wily parrot, there is scarcely a moment for reading his beloved spy thrillers as the years go by. Acting as temporary secretary to Priest’s Marsh Writing Circle provides Roland the opportunity he has been waiting for: the Circle is holding a cash prize competition – and money means escape. It’s a simple case of beating his rivals … isn’t it? Roland devises a strategy to win but is soon receiving disturbing phone calls. And who is the dark figure stalking him on a motorbike?
