Monica haunts the quayside picking up men of a certain age. Then one of them is found dead. Since nobody knows what she does at night, she can't be in the frame for the murder.
At her lowest point, she meets Bobby Wilson, an ordinary lad, handsome in his way.
But is this the right time to fall in love?
As the oily Tyne flows past the wharfs and under the iconic bridge, middle-aged men are being targeted by a vicious killer. Monica Brown, damaged, abused, just happens to be in the area - just happens to be excited by the murders.
Dog Leap Stairs is a blend of psychological realism and crime; dark, claustrophobic and atmospheric, it is both a portrait of Tyneside in the 1950s and an account of one woman's struggle against her true nature.
