She hopes that there is perhaps a tenuous hyperlink that she will be able to use for a successful article.

The Dorset location appealed to me as a couple of years in the past I visited the true deserted village of Tyneham which this story relies upon. I preferred the thriller parts too, particularly these surrounding the lacking evacuees. Liz’s personal backstory unfolds with a couple of surprises, whereas her dedication to hunt out particulars and comply with clues made her a likeable character.
