Twenty-something grad student Dulcie is having an awful summer. She's had to put her beloved cat Mr Grey to sleep; she can't decide on a thesis topic; and her best friend and room-mate has gone away, leaving her with a sub-letter, Tim, a boorish business school jerk. Walking home from her boring temp job she sees a cat the spitting image of Mr Grey and hears, in her head, a serious male voice saying, "I wouldn't go in just now, if I were you." Ignoring the cat's advice she enters - to find Tim dead, stabbed with Dulcie's own knife. Dulcie finds herself in the frame for murder, while the ghost of Mr Grey continues to appear, offering his cryptic advice. Then Dulcie discovers a ghostly Gothic novel, featuring a beleaguered heroine whose life is strangely reminiscent of her own
