BY ME

By Jonathan Empson It is 1994, and David Davis, maintainer of elderly computer systems, is making a comfortable living from corporate paranoia about the Y2K bug. Unfortunately he has no love life, thanks to both his occupation and his main hobby – classic cars. Whole weeks can pass without him meeting a single woman, let alone a woman who’s single. Then, at a client party thrown by a car restoration company, David meets Karen – good-looking, newly separated, tipsy – and makes the most of the opportunity. And later, when she wants him to be the ‘S’ to her ‘&M’, he’s happy to oblige. David slips away early the next morning after being called in urgently by a client. He leaves Karen asleep in her big and empty house. But later that day, the police come calling: Karen has been discovered comatose from a serious head injury, apparently the victim of a sexual assault. She is now on life support. Released on bail, David can’t resist the urge to investigate the case. The trail leads to an apparently worthless scrapbook that Karen has just inherited from her recently deceased mother. Could it hold the key to the motive for the attack? David is soon involved in a chase across England, pursuing a centuries-old literary mystery. But he’s not the only one on the trail…
