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 has taken a job as a live-in secretary in a large house in the country. Ostensibly she's there to catalogue Kenneth's music collection, and to write a memoir of the elderly man's life. 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. Now he has fallen in love with her. But Maggie has a deeper purpose, one she has not yet revealed to him. She is trying to find out what happened to her as a child, when she was abducted, at the age of four.

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