Freya vient de perdre son mari et sa maison. Elle a besoin d’un toit de toute urgence, pour elle et sa fille de cinq ans. La chance lui sourit le jour où elle rencontre le charismatique Dr Marsden, qui cherche à louer un appartement dans un quartier cossu de Londres pour un loyer dérisoire. Mais pas à n’importe qui : les nouveaux locataires devront se faire accepter des autres résidents. Quand Freya emménage à Adder House, quelque chose lui dit que c’est trop beau pour être vrai...
Derrière sa porte fermée à double tour, elle a l’impression qu’on épie ses moindres faits et gestes. Elle jurerait qu’on s’introduit chez elle en son absence. Est-ce vraiment le hasard qui l’a conduite ici ? On prétend que la précédente locataire n’a pas tenu plus de huit mois, et qu’elle a mis fin à ses jours...
