Joanne Hunter's secure suburban world is falling apart.
Her husband's desertion after twenty years of marriage
leaves her stunned. Eve, her best friend, is strangely
distant. Her grandfather, who's been a pillar of strength
and support, lies ill and helpless in a nursing home. Lana
and Robin, her teenage daughters, claim every ounce of her
energy and devotion and all the love she feels she has lost.
Only one person seems to care -- a stranger with a rasping
voice, a tormentor with a vicious mind. Danger and despair
close in with each ring of the telephone. Each deadly
message lures her inexorably towards the deep end...
