'Ghosts in stories are grey, like the people in black-and-white television or else see-through, but this one had short dark hair and a brown neck and a black leather jacket. Minty didn't have to see its face to know it was her late fiance, Jock.' Jock was supposed to have died in the Paddington train crash. Minty had received a letter from the railway company. But, curiously, the police hadn't been in touch. And Jock had gone off with all her savings. Then there was Zilla Leach. She had been married to a man called Jerry. She's also received a letter from Great Western that her husband was dead. She didn't really believe the story, but chose not to mention her doubts to James Melcombe-Smith, an up-and-coming Conservative MP, who was proposing a marriage of convenience...Fiona was a successful banker. Jeff Leigh had appeared on the scene before that terrible rail crash in October. Although he borrowed money from her and never seemed to be in work, she loved him. Jock's ghost reappeared to Minty at home, at work, even in the cinema. He even touched her. Minty started to carry a knife. If he wasn't made of shadows, would he bleed?
