Stewart works as a photographer at a mortuary. An odd but sweetly innocent man, his appearance and stutter sometimes frighten bystanders. Stewart's "real" life is lived in front of his computer, playing a sinister game. He is ill-equipped for dealing with the real world.
One day a nameless drowning victim is brought into the morgue. Stewart is compelled by her fragile blond beauty, even as she lies frozen in death. He quickly becomes obsessed with finding her identity, and his sheltered life is thrown into turmoil. Penelope Evans has created a macabre tale of psychological suspense that The Times (London) dubbed a "minor masterpiece".
