Jamie, a mid-forties, recent divorcee, is down on his luck. His wife, and best friend & business partner, Graeme, betrayed Jamie’s trust in one of the worst ways they could.

Still recovering from the turmoil, Jamie moves into an apartment block and meets a nice, friendly woman, Anne, who lives in the apartment upstairs. They quickly become a little sweet on each other.

While getting to know each other a little better, Anne keeps behaving a little oddly. First of all, she collects vintage records, and doesn’t seem to know anything about CDs, podcasts, live streaming, and that sort of thing.

She’s even seems a little bewildered when she sees Jamie’s iPhone.

What’s more, the computer she owns is a 1980s Macintosh. A seriously old fashioned desktop machine that no one uses anymore.

At least, no one besides Anne, apparently.

Jamie rushes back to his apartment to pick something up to show Anne, on his return to her apartment, Jame finds Anne gone, and her place completely empty. It looked like it hadn’t been lived in for a long time.

This begins Jamie’s fascinating journey, trying to find out who Anne was, and where she disappeared to.

I found this a really fun and engaging read. I really enjoy a good sci-fi story and this one didn’t disappoint.

The narration (since I consume most of my stories through audiobooks) was pretty good too.
