When a young writer accepts a job at a university in the English countryside, it's meant to be a fresh start, away from the scene of a violent assault she is desperate to forget. But despite the distractions of her new life and the demands of single motherhood, her nerves continue to jangle. A vicious debate about violence against women inflames the tensions and mounting rivalries in her creative-writing class. When a troubled student starts turning in chapters that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the professor recognises herself as the main character in his book - and he has written her a horrific fate.
