Every night since she'd acquired a box of valuable tomes in Latin, Audrey had observed a gaunt figure detach itself from the shadows and follow her to the station where it vanished in the crowd.
After a while, she'd had enough. Lingering in front of boutique windows, she waited.
Dragging footsteps stopped behind her. Staring at her plate-glass reflection, Audrey was startled to see she was alone.
Cold hands gripped her throat.
CCTV recordings and the Coroner's report confirmed that she'd died of a heart attack.
