When Darcy Mayhew picks up the phone while making dinner, her life is turned upside down. Her husband Hugo has been in an accident and now he is dead. Nearly two years later she has moved with her son Nat from Martha’s Vineyard to Brooklyn, to try and rebuild her life. When Joe from the Vineyard turns up at her new work and begins to plague her with hundreds of emails and phone calls things suddenly turn ugly.
Still grieving over her dead husband, Darcy must now face the added challenge of a potentially dangerous stalker. Lief tackles the difficult subject of stalking very well and Angela’s character represents the horrors that often present themselves to victims of stalking. Our writer Lucy wrote her review of this in February, and has chosen it as her top crime book of 2013.
