Horror-romance. An offbeat reworking of Shades of Day, which is itself an off-beat contemporary version of White Nights (as befits a Dostoyevsky-inspired project, the plot ever-thickens).

Will Nancy’s book where no killings take place, stand the test of life? Well, fiction and reality don’t play by the same rules.
