Tinka Jones needs to escape her London life and her job as a journalist. She decides to visit Amista, a friend that she has been writing to for some time. Amista lives in an isolated house in the Welsh hills and Tinka is looking forward to the peace and tranquillity as well as to meeting her new friend. However, when Tinka arrives in Wales she is completely unprepared for the reception she receives. The locals have never heard of Amista and soon an increasingly frustrated Tinka begins to question everything she thought she knew. Who has been writing her letters if Amista doesn't exist, and if she does exist then where is she? As events take a more sinister turn Tinka finds herself growing more uneasy. Stuck in a desolate house on the rain-swept hills she encounters unsettling and bizarre visitations as she sets out to unearth the mystery that surrounds Amista and the house - with chilling consequences. First published in 1950 Cat and Mouse is a classic thriller.
