Which characters dared to write the author out of the script? When Dodie Fanshaw went to stay with her daughter, Elena, in Markenlea, she had been expecting a peaceful, sedate village on the banks of the River Thames. But then a mermaid clambers out of the river and into Elena's garden. Well, not a mermaid exactly a mysterious, sopping-wet girl. Bizarre and intriguing though she is, it's only when Dodie and Elena call on Elena's neighbour, best-selling novelist Rick Wilbraham, that the real story unfolds. There they find Anna, Rick's girlfriend, hysterically clinging on to Rick's lifeless body. Soon Rick's pleasant riverside garden fills up with his neighbours, ex-lovers, his publisher and agent and Dodie can't help herself getting involved in this close-knit village. A cosy puzzle, but what genre is the motive? It could be Romance, might be Mystery. And the mermaid? Well, that's just pure Fantasy . . .
