When Cat Thomas moves from Florida to Edinburgh, her dreams of living in her idyllic wee flat in the Dean Village are soon shattered by her disrespectful and inconsiderate neighbour.
At her wits’ end she’ll do anything to restore the peace. O’Neill creates a real sense of Edinburgh through his descriptions of its architecture.
A story that’s very easy to slip into, I found myself being driven to distraction by this neighbour from hell.
