Episode 2

An adaptation of Trezza Azzopardi's new novel - a compelling psychological thriller involving a young woman with a secret in her past. During a rainy summer, Maggie arrives for a job interview at a large house in the country. The house is empty apart from Kenneth, an elderly man, who wants a secretary to do an unusual live-in job. He wants someone to listen to his vast and eclectic music collection, then transcribe his impressions and memories connected to each piece of music. Kenneth is odd, isolated, perhaps on the edge of dementia. He wants to record what each piece of music means to him while he can still remember. But Maggie is mysterious too and she has some hidden plan in taking this job. Lonely and dependent, Kenneth has no inkling as yet of the real reason she's here.

Trezza Azzopardi's novels have been short-listed for numerous awards, including the Booker.
