Summary
After moving to Devon with her family to start anew after leaving a hectic job, Justine begins receiving threatening phone calls. She finds and reads a story ostensibly written by her teenage daughter, Ellen, about a murderous family called Ingrey who live in Speedwell. To add to the complications, Ellen begins to withdraw when her new best friend, George, is unfairly expelled from school. Justine speaks to the head teacher, only to be told that nobody has been expelled, and that there has never been a student named George. When the mysterious caller begins to talk about three graves -- two big, and one small, to fit a child -- Justine fears for the safety of her family. An expert narrative that examines the way we fictionalize our lives, and the fine line between ordinary and monstrous, and between fact, imagination, and fiction
