About this title

Synopsis:

When Frances Shore joins her engineer husband in Jeddah she is warned not to ask questions. But bored, she begins to speculate about her neighbours and the empty flat above her. At first she believes the flat is being used as a lover's tryst - then she suspects something more sinister.
