He doesn't wait for an invitation...

Can a good person go too far to protect his family? That is the question underlying The Intruder -- a gripping tale of a family fighting for its life.

Having survived a childhood of beatings and psychological torture, successful Manhattan lawyer Jacob Schiff cherishes his stable family life with his wife, Dana, a psychiatric social worker, and their teenage son, Alex. But Jake sees it all unraveling when Dana's patient John Gates, a homeless man, starts stalking her and menacing the family. As Gates' behavior becomes even more bizarre and violent, Jake is driven to the breaking point and takes a fatal step that could destroy everything he cares about.

Written with lacerating authority, The Intruder is a classic, powerful thriller that thrusts Peter Blauner into the ranks of major contemporary authors. Download and start listening now!

    " The first Peter Blauner book for me, and I'll read more. I was seeking a psycho/mystery intriguing yet no brainer for a reading break. I found it in Blauner. Excellent book about a man who loses everything and what it does to him. "

    " This book is about a homeless man and a family in New York city, who by a series of events and mistakes in judgement gets the father of this family into trouble for murder. It was suspenseful, but also was annoying in that people should just mind their own business. "
