Perfectly composed in a tailored skirt and jacket, Eleanor Porter walks confidently through the lobby of a gleaming skyscraper on London’s Isle of Dogs. The newly appointed “night lawyer” for the tabloid Chronicle, Eleanor has been hired to protect her employer from lawsuits. It’s a job she can do with her whole heart. After all, she knows what it’s like to be vulnerable.

Three years ago, after the violent death of her father and her abandonment by her married lover, Eleanor fell apart. But with determination and courage, and with the newfound discipline of karate, she made her way back to the land of the living: She shed pounds, reshaped her appearance, bought herself a modest home, and kept the memories at bay. Now, with the new job, she hopes to launch herself into happiness.

But one by one, problems emerge: the wayward young neighbor through whose walls Eleanor hears things she does not want to hear; the unsettling reappearance of her former lover; the security expert who catches her on camera in an intimate moment and decides that he is going to keep watching.

Even more disturbing, someone is stalking her, following her on the nighttime streets of London. Whoever it is has gone so far as to break into her house–even to sleep in her bed. Eleanor knows that she is in real trouble, but the danger is even worse than she can imagine. And this time, the damage may be beyond all repair.

In this white-knuckle novel of psychological suspense, Michelle Spring demonstrates her mastery at capturing the clean, well-lit façade of modern life–and the chaotic terrors that lurk just beneath the surface.
