Fran Varady is insolvent, unemployed and, though she’s got the leaky roof of the squat she shares in Jubilee Street over her head, thanks to the council eviction department she’ll very soon be homeless. Her dreams of becoming an actress, nurtured when her father and grandmother were still alive, seem a long way off. But the quietly resolute Fran, for all her youth and apparent vulnerability, is a survivor. Which her former housemate Terry, found hanging from the ceiling rose of her room, clearly is not. Terry, secretive and selfish, was not popular with the rest of the household, but her death shakes the squat residents. And the more Fran discovers about the death of the young woman whose life so briefly intersected with her own, the more she began to see it was not all it seemed.
