Visitors from other planets are not usually a part of renting a cottage and Susan is a woman who feels she can take on anything, as long as she can identify the problem, she can discover an answer to it. Enter the image of an Adonis, a naked man on a rainy night – seared into her memory, and the awareness that an escaped prisoner is on the loose. Violetta Antcliff has woven a tale of mystery, brewed with a wee touch of fun.
Susan is a strong woman; not even the break up of her marriage fazed her. She just picked herself up, brushed herself off and got on with life. She has a firm belief that for every problem there is an answer. However, when she rents a cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, she finds her motto put to the test. UFOs, a naked man who claims to be an interplanetary agent, and a dangerous escaped prisoner are not typical everyday occurrences in her life. And as she is to find out to her dismay, a cup of tea is not the answer to the strange state of affairs she finds herself caught up in.
