Professor George Grey is a brilliant behavioural biologist who, alongside her recently deceased husband, became world-renowned for her pioneering research into octopus intelligence. Mainly the intelligence of one particular octopus, in fact: Frances, who still resides in a large, purpose-built tank in George’s campus accommodation.
Into this house of grief walks Harry—an ambitious anthropologist, despatched by the university with permission to test his breathtaking new theory on Frances. The nature of his assignment is shocking to George, and threatens to tear her world apart in more ways than one.
