Beautiful, fawn-like, but a hostage to love, Laura du Lay arrives in the remote county of Northumberlandhamptonshire to take up her position as confidential secretary to the reclusive Forbes Murdston. She has ignored for as long as she can the unsettling rumours that surround her new employer, his ominous teutonic manservant Klaus, swarthy-but-sweaty lawyer Roger Parchment and the ancient mansion. But Murdston’s violent mood-swings can only signify one thing... And her an orphan!
