Shelley is taking a package holiday on a small Greek island, but she doesn't really feel part of the group. She's had a tough year, and definitely doesn't want any new romantic entanglement.. but she's rather attracted to one of the staff.

Odd things are happening, too. She meets an elderly man, but nobody else seems to have seen him. She finds some letters, and then they vanish. Shelley almost begins to wonder if she's going crazy - and doesn't know who she can trust.

Suspense is high in places, which kept me reading longer than I'd intended at times. The story is fast-paced with just the right amount of description for my tastes, and some good characterisation. It's a pocket novel, so much shorter than a normal book, and not many subplots; but I found myself feeling quite involved with Shelley, and enjoyed it very much. Recommended. ( )
