Publisher Description

Miranda’s sister, Kerri, has a new boyfriend. He’s a raven-haired, handsome charmer who seems to dote on Kerri. But Brendan isn’t the man he says he is. Miranda should know, because she broke off her own affair with him just a few weeks ago when she found him reading her diary.

Now Brendan claims that it was he who ended their short-lived relationship—and everyone believes him. When he and Kerri announce their engagement, Miranda’s parents are thrilled for their shyer, less confident daughter. Then Kerri and Brendan beg Miranda to let them live in her apartment until their new home is ready. Against her better judgment, Miranda agrees.

Like a virus, Brendan starts spreading destruction throughout her life. He invades her privacy and disrupts her relationships with her family and friends. And then the real nightmare begins.…

Like the obscenities he whispers into her ear, his onslaughts are as undetectable as they are devastating. Those closest to her begin to doubt her mental stability and accuse her of the very thing she believes drives Brendan: obsession. When Miranda decides to take off the gloves, fight back, and discover what is behind her enemy’s bemused, secret smile, the consequences will be terrifying.

"Really good thriller with a very creepy bad guy. Miranda breaks up with her new boyfriend Brendan when she finds him reading her diary. Two weeks later, she finds out he is going out with her sister. He worms his way into her family and starts tormenting her, but no one will believe her, with tragic consequences. While in the beginning, you can't believe Miranda isn't doing more to stop him, it becomes clear as she tries to do just that, how cleverly he is manipulating everyone. It made a change in a thriller to know from the beginning who the baddie is, and instead the suspense lies in wondering how it will all work out. The ending let it down a little, but could be rectified by a sequel, set a few years down the track."

    " This was a FREAKIN amazing book. I'm never disappointed with a Nicci French book. I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to pick up her next novel. This suspensful novel kept you at the edge of your seat to see what happened next. I recommend this book to EVERYBODY. "

    " This is a very topical story. A stalker - or is the person telling the story the stalker? It does feel very creepy in a number of places, but so does having a stalker. A satisfying ending and an easy read. "

    " I only read this because of the movie version, which starred David Tennant as Brendan. To my surprise, the book came across less over-the-top and melodramatic than the movie (which was a bit like a British version of a Lifetime Original Movie). All-in-all, an enjoyable read. "
