The story starts with a dead man. He was a neighbour, not someone Abby knew well, but still, finding a body when you only came over to borrow a tin of tomatoes, that comes as a bit of a shock. At least, it should. And now she can’t shake the feeling that if she hadn’t gone into Simon’s flat, if she’d had her normal Wednesday night instead, then none of what happened next would have happened. This tale of Abby and her illness (bipolar disorder) is gripping and harrowing in parts and all the more poignant when you read at the end of the story of Extence’s own mental health issues. Clever stuff!
