Ruby lives alone in the house she once shared with her husband. By day she sleeps and by night she watches people. She's a CCTV operator, trained to spot early signs of danger. But some things are impossible to predict.

One night, through the eye of the camera, Ruby sees a girl she thought she would never see again. Secretly, harmlessly, Ruby starts to watch her. Until just watching isn't enough . . .

Then someone finds out what she's been up to and things spiral out of her control. In the end, one person will end up behind bars, and another will end up dead.

The locked library of St Agatha's College, Cambridge houses an unrivalled, and according to certain scholars, deeply uninteresting collection of seventeenth century volumes. It also contains one dead student. Tragic and accidental, of course, even if malicious gossip hints that Philip Skellow had been engaged in stealing books rather than acquiring knowledge when he'd slipped, banged his head, and bled to death overnight. Only Imogen Quy, the college nurse, has her doubts - until another student is found, drowned in an ornamental fountain...
