A bookworm teenager is brutally attacked by a vengeful author after she gives him a scathing review. She could never have known that his book was a fictionalised confession of years of pathological stalking of a young woman whose mistake was to smile at him.

A 15-year-old boy is surprised when MI6 approaches him online with a direct order from the Queen to work as a spy. His exciting new life takes a deadly turn when his girlfriend is kidnapped and he is ordered to kill his best friend

A woman is surprised by men turning up on her doorstep expecting to take part in a rape fantasy – one they believed she posted on Craigslist

Dark Webs Book 3 takes you into the twisted world of stalkers and the devastating impact their obsessions can have on their victims

This true crime book has some really wild stories about obsessive stalkers and the craziest thing about them? They have all happened in real life. Some of them were downright chilling and creepy to read about. It may sound weird to say but I really enjoyed it!

I’ve actually already heard about two of the cases featured in this book before but yet again the author provided more details than I had originally known or remembered. This was all super fascinating to read and find out about and yet she didn’t make any of the stories longer than they should be. It’s a 304 page book but it reads fairly quickly and easily.

This is the third book by Eileen Ormsby that I’ve read now and I’ve enjoyed each and every one of them. So of course I would highly recommend those too. They have been some of the best books in this particular genre that I’ve ever read.
