i read some reviews before i read this book. and, honestly, i don't i don't agree with some of the reviews.
i love the book. this was the first book i read by mary jane clark, and i couldn't put it down. her writing is rated right up there with her mother. other reviews stated that the reader couldn't see a reason why the killer wanted to kill eliza. if you pay attention to the last few chapters, as well as the whole book, you can tell that the killer goes after her because his is obsessed with her. he loves her and when she refuses to love him back, he vows that no one else can love her either.
this book is a real page turner. i can't wait to read more of her books.
So-so thriller about a network newscaster being stalked by a murderous "fan". Clark's attempts to scatter the novel with likely suspects results in the borderline-ludicrous notion that everyone who meets the main character or even watches her on television is instantly obsessed with her.
