When Laura reached the address she found a man she had seen only once before lying stabbed: murdered. Thus Laura, and Jonny are precipitated into a situation laden with terror and nightmare. Any one of the visitors that come openly or secretly to Laura's fiat may be a murderer . . . Once again M. G.
