    The man who had died was Ismay's stepfather, Guy. Nine years on, she and her sister, Heather, still live in the same house in Clapham. But it has been divided into two self-contained flats. Their mother lives upstairs with her sister, Pamela. And the bathroom, where Guy drowned, has disappeared. Ismay works in public relations, and Heather in catering. They get on well. They always have. They never discuss the changes to the house, still less what happened that August day.

    Although Ismay finds herself feeling intensely protective of her little sister and of the secret they share, their lives move placidly, even happily, forward. It seems as if the mysterious death of their stepfather is behind them. But when Heather becomes seriously involved with a man for the first time, Ismay's long-repressed memories can no longer be ignored. With painful inevitability, the surprising truth will emerge, whether Ismay wants it to or not.

    Weeks went by when Ismay never thought of it at all. Then something would bring it back or it would return in a dream. The dream always began in the same way. She and her mother would be climbing the stairs, following Heather's lead through the bedroom to what was on the other side, not a bathroom in the dream but a chamber floored and walled in marble. In the middle of it was a glassy lake. The white thing in the water floated towards her, its face submerged, and her mother said, absurdly, "Don't look!"

    Systrarna Heather och Ismay är båda i trettioårsåldern och bor ihop. En trappa upp i samma hus bor deras schizofrena mamma som vårdas av sin syster. Systrarna pratar aldrig om det fruktansvärda som hände nio år tidigare då deras styvpappa, Guy, hittades drunknad i badkaret. Inte heller pratar de om att Heather var ensam hemma med Guy då det hände eller att hon var drypande blöt när hon mötte sin mamma och syster i trappan. Tillsammans har de diktat ihop en historia för polisen som ger Heather alibi och fallet avskrivs som en olycka.
