In the book Dead Point, (I listened to Audio Book) Jack mentioned that he cleaned the flat, the put on music by Millie Huskind (I think) Can't find anything on the internet about her, is she fictional, did I spell it wrong?

Alas it's been many years and I can't remember what the name of the musician was - but I do have a copy of Dead Point somewhere in the archives so I'll see if I can dig it out and find the printed name for you.
