Author Charles Rowan already has a lot on his mind with the undertaking of his latest novel.

He also needs to figure out his new relationship with artist Julia Spence, whom he meets at a party in London. It's already in strains due to the distance between them, what with him residing in a country village and her in London. But Charles enjoys his lovely rural home and peaceful surroundings which facilitate his writing - can he really sacrifice those things for Julia?

But trouble seems to come in search of Charles, as he finds himself entangled in a series of murders that transpire after he starts to receive anonymous phone calls. The caller want to inspire his next novel with these dark deeds...

How will Charles get through this and will he be able to avert the telephone murderer - 'Hogan' - from his macabre game?

Who is he? And what does he want?
