A haunting mystery with surprises right through to the final page.
Jess White, aged 14, has been uprooted from her home and taken to live on a remote yet populated island, at the whim of her parents
- Mum is an artist; Dad a photographer. While she is bemoaning her new (lack of) life to her best friend via computer chatroom, they are interrupted by a third party - although only Jess is aware of the presence that calls itself 'V'.
This is the start of a most extraordinary and creepy mystery. Jess finds herself caught up in a cycle of deadly occurrences, a cycle that has apparently happened before and, it seems, is about to be re-enacted through her and her family. Unable to ignore or stop the chain of events, Jess (and the reader) unravel the clues, guided only by the enigmatic Epsilon - who may or may not be real/mortal/'Good'.
