“17/06/05. Day 268. Ashburton New Zealand
Dead, please God no, please let this be some horrible nightmare that I will wake up from any minute.
Through the window of the waiting room I can see the nurse talking to two policemen. They will come to question me soon, I cannot face this right now, I cannot...”
Through the pages of a travel diary a tale of betrayal unfolds, but are the events in the diary a record of what has happened or what is about to happen?
And whose diary is it? Is it Anna’s , a meek kind girl who lives a contented life in the quiet streets of Portsmouth, or is it Jenny’s, Anna’s sister who went travelling a year ago and who now cannot return home, or does the diary belong to the mysterious Mark, a boy Anna meets at a party who suffers from terrible nightmares?
When Mark disappears Anna abandons her safe life at home and travels to the far side of the world in search of him, a journey that threatens to twist the shy, good girl she was beyond all recognition.
