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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudie | 1/18/2014

    " spooky, slightly predictable but a good holiday read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/1/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 12/30/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia Dodge Elias | 12/28/2013

    " The book was really fun to read, because you never knew what could happen next. I loved the psychology, and I could really relate to the main character. "

    " I started this book last night and did not put it down until the very last page. It's one of the most suspenseful thrillers I have read in recent months. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie | 9/5/2013

    " Frustrating book with a decent ending, but not worth the annoying parts to get there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma J | 11/8/2012

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elsje | 4/5/2012

    " Nee, dit was geen hoogstandje van Nicci French. Een flauw verhaaltje, niet echt spannend. Ik las het wel uit. Daarom: toch nog twee sterren. "

    " I've seen this author but never read anything by her . . was surprised at how much I enjoyed the book. I guess it would be considered a "psychological" thriller or mystery. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anna | 3/25/2011

    " The only thing I liked about this one is that it was written using British sayings and vocabulary.
    I hated the story and found it way too unrealistic and quite boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 8/10/2010

    " 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. "
