About this title


Gail May, a trainee therapist, is seeing her first patient, that all-important person upon whose case study her qualification depends. As a novice therapist Gail is cautious to adhere to all the therapeutic rules. But the problem is that her patient, an East European woman who believes she has a stalker, never speaks. Gail presumes these are the symptoms of paranoid delusion. It is 1993, there is a war in Yugoslavia and Gail wonders if there is a connection. Starved of information she begins to resort to progressively unorthodox means. As Gail’s private life falls apart her interest in her patient intensifies, growing into an obsession. Then the lines between fiction and reality, between intrusion and therapy become dangerously confused, setting off a chain of events that impact both their lives.
