“Extremely tense and very gripping with a killer ‘what if’: your stalker claims to be the only person who can save you – what if this time he’s telling the truth.” –Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

He tells you you’re special…
As a barrister, Ingrid Lewis is used to dealing with tricky clients, but no one has ever come close to John Webster. After Ingrid defended Webster against a stalking charge, he then turned on her – following her, ruining her relationship, even destroying her home.
He tells you he wants to protect you…
Now, Ingrid believes she has finally escaped his clutches. But when one of her colleagues is run down on a busy London road, Ingrid is sure she was the intended victim. And then Webster shows up at her door…
But can you believe him?
Webster claims Ingrid is in danger – and that only he can protect her. Stalker or saviour? Murderer or protector? The clock is ticking for Ingrid to decide. Because the killer is ready to strike again.

Read this in one day - one day! Revenge, perceived revenge, and constant terror - but so mundane you can believe it may happen to you if you meet just the wrong person. No spoilers, but you just have to keep reading and no cheating to see the end, you will want to, but don't!

Being paranoid all the time is no way to live. But what if you have good reason to be? Ingrid is a lawyer who has always felt a stalking case would come back to haunt her. That lingering fear comes homes to roost. The book has a clever twist, where the culprit becomes the accomplice, switching sides, or does he? The author weaves a story that swoops and dives with alacrity and will leave readers to feverishly pursue the truth until the final act,

I love Jane Casey's stories and the characters in them. The barrister is being stalked and only her stalker can save her. Or so he says. Who can she believe. A great thriller!!! It keeps you on your toes and guessing. I give this book five stars.
