Twenty-three year old Katy Speed is fascinated by the house across the street. Gloria, the woman who lives there, is the most glamorous neighbour on the avenue, but all is not as it appears.

Katy has noticed a black car making regular visits to Gloria’s home often bringing women, and sometimes children. Intrigued, Katy is keen to find out more but Hilda, Katy's mother, disapproves of Gloria. She wonders if these mysterious visitors have just been released from prison.

Then one night, the house burns down...

In the wreckage, the bodies of Gloria and her daughter are found. Katy is sure the unexplained visitors must be responsible but before she can find out more, her father is arrested and charged with murder. Surely the police have arrested the wrong man? Are the rest of the street safe and can Katy find the truth before it's too late?

Join Lesley to explore this gripping novel.
