After escaping London and a career that nearly destroyed her, Justine plans to spend her days doing as little as possible in her beautiful home in Devon. But soon after the move, her daughter Ellen starts to withdraw when her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school. Justine begs the head teacher to reconsider, only to be told that nobody's been expelled - there is, and was, no George. Then the anonymous calls start: a stranger, making threats that suggest she and Justine share a traumatic past and a guilty secret - yet Justine doesn't recognise her voice. When the caller starts to talk about three graves - two big and one small, to fit a child - Justine fears for her family's safety. If the police can't help, she'll have to eliminate the danger herself, but first she must work out who she's supposed to be.

This mystery is reminiscent of an adult version of Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events". It is dark, sometimes violent, sometimes sarcastically funny, and just plain weird. The story-line is interesting for the most part, but it quickly starts to unravel and become messy near the end.

Most of the characters are likable (if not believable), especially Figgy. He is a little grey Bedlington Terrier puppy who doesn't do much, but is cute all the same.

don't waste your time, ridiculous story. I'm surprised I even finished it, but I kept hoping it was going to get better, sadly it didn't.

Finally finished it and I'm angry with myself for wasting time on such a ridiculous story!

Complicated and very, very unrealistic. Pass on this one.

Long-winded, ridiculous story. Reminiscent of the Famous Five, except Enid Blyton did it better.
