Emilia Ward is just an ordinary mum living happily in suburban London with her husband and two children - a teenager from her first marriage, a little boy from her second. She also happens to be the bestselling author of the Miranda Moody detective novels. But when Emilia embarks on her tenth novel, life takes a disturbing turn: an incident straight out of the plot of one of her novels occurs in real life. Just an unsettling coincidence, she thinks. Until it happens again - and again. Then someone she knows dies in the same way as a victim in the book she's currently writing. Why is someone doing this? How do they know what she is writing? And what if Emilia and her family are next?
