Screenwriter and novelist
Set in Philadelphia. After surviving a kidnap and murder attempt by a young man who seeks and then rejects mother-figures, a British-born woman can find no peace until she's found him and ended his misery.
A classic of the suspense genre, an obsessive read with a genuinely sinister central character to rival Psycho's Norman Bates, and enough surprises to keep you turning the pages as fast as your stomach will let you.
