When he is accused of stalking a woman he swears he's never met, a local businessman asks Fred Carver for help clearing his name

Joel Brandt swears he's never met the woman before. His wife dead six months before, the small-time businessman is perplexed when Del Moray police inform him that a local woman, Marla Cloy, has accused him of harassing her. According to her, Joel has been lurking outside of her house, following her car, even assaulting her at the grocery store. Brandt says it's all a lie, but the police don't believe him.

He goes to Fred Carver, an ex-cop turned PI, for help clearing his name. The harder Carver looks, the less he understands. There is no apparent connection between the two people, and yet one of them is trying to destroy the other's life. When this game turns deadly, who will be the first to go?

This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Lutz including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
