Setting: Modern Day
Back Cover Synopsis:
A tense edge-of-your-seat psychological drama you won't want to put down
Since losing her husband, receptionist Mary has lived a quiet and rather dull life. So when she begins to be seen around with a handsome, considerably younger man, it raises the eyebrows of her friends and family. But do they really know what is going on, and what might happen to Mary before they understand the danger she is in?
"One hell of a creepy stalker novel. A real page-turner." Betsy Raven
"The tension built up to breaking point. I could not put this thriller down." Geoff Stewart
"An edgy psychological suspense. One of Dickson's best." Patricia Holmes
First of all, this isn't a gothic romance. I would categorize it as a first-person romantic suspense. The book was one of those edge-of-your-seat page-turners. I couldn't put this book down and found myself sympathizing for the main character, Mary. Middle-aged and single, Mary seems to have found the excitement she's been missing in life since her husband died. She didn't see any harm in adding a little spice to her life, but when she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for she must use her own wits in order to save her life. This is ridiculously good read and I'd highly recommend it to fans of romantic suspense/thriller.
