"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.
