A driving rainstorm. A remote country home. And one killer.
Hester Warnock fell in love with the charismatic Malcolm Driver in 1974 while at his farm-turned-commune, an affair that ended abruptly when a young pregnant girl was found drowned in the lake.
Thirty-five years later, now a successful magazine publisher, Hester is invited back to the scene of the crime to participate in a documentary of Malcolm's life and times as the bestselling author of Spirit Driver.
The documentary never gets off the ground. In the middle of a fierce rainstorm, she finds Malcolm hanging from a tree. Hester holds a clue that proves her ex-lover's death wasn't suicide but her guilty past begins to haunt her. As she unravels the secrets of seven suspects, Hester draws closer to the truth about herself.
Set in the wilds of Quebec, THE GREY LADY is a psychological thriller which explores the power play between men and women and asks whether crimes of passion can ever be excused.
