Summary

The incredible new break-out thriller from the Sunday Times best-selling author. Don’t miss the book everyone will be talking about this year!

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.

I did enjoy it…

but. I didn’t like Ingrid! And I absolutely cannot bear emails, texts, DMs or tweets in audiobooks! It’s so annoying hearing them. In a book you would only concentrate on the pertinent parts and skip over the unnecessary bits. That’s just me. I do enjoy this author.

Gripping with twists and turns- loved it

I wasn’t sure I was going to get into this at first but after a couple of chapters I was totally absorbed. Finished it within 4 days.
