The Book of You
Clarissa is being stalked, and like most victims, she knows her stalker. She even has vague memories of intimacy between them, but her memories fade following the time she and Rafe left the bar. She is about to find out what happened that night, courtesy of some very personal pictures her stalker has been hoarding…
The Book of You, the debut novel by Claire Kendal, recounts the events following the one night Clarissa spends with Rafe after being discarded by her married lover. Clarissa anxiously attempts to piece together the events of the night, but her memories are cloudy. She becomes a prisoner in her home and finds respite in her appointment to a seven week jury deliberating a rape and assault case. But there is nowhere to hide; she is observed and confronted by Rafe wherever she goes.
Clarissa wavers between indecision and purposeful action as we witness her resolve to end this nightmare. The “you” in this story is Rafe, and Clarissa is chronicling every moment and every action of his assault on her. Will she gather enough evidence to justify police involvement, or is she too late?
Explore the depths of desperation in this tense, psychological thriller by an engaging new author.
