Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"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. 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... 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."--Publisher.

    *Starred Review* London barrister Ingrid Lewis' philosophy is that even the worst criminals deserve legal representation and a fair trial. This has meant defending criminals who might well have been found guilty if it weren't for Ingrid's considerable legal skills. But her successes begin to turn sour after she's threatened, attacked, loses her fiancé, and finds a dead woman in her apartment. Ingrid fears this is all the work of John Webster, a sociopath she got acquitted of stalking who is now focusing his unwavering, unwanted, and truly terrifying attention on her. For months, Webster's threats have escalated, but Ingrid has no hard evidence to prove he's a danger to her, and the police write her off as paranoid. She decides it's up to her to catch Webster out, but she begins to wonder if her fears are misplaced. Is there someone else who has a serious grudge against her? If so, who? And why? And what lengths might they go to take their revenge? Fixated on discovering the truth, Ingrid can't trust anyone except herself. When she does figure out what's happening, her worst fears are realized. An intense, unputdownable roller-coaster ride packed with relentless suspense, terrifying twists and dramatic turns, dark violence, unforgettable characters, and an ending guaranteed to shock. An absolute must-read. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
