I found The Stalker by Karen Lewis difficult to stay interested in. There seemed to be far more telling than showing, which made the suspense minimal. As well as being unsure just where the story was set, I didn't feel any sympathy for the characters who seemed wooden and clichéd. All in all, the book left me with many questions. Suspense should have the reader on the edge of their seat, hanging on the next word for what happens next and I just didn’t get that from this title.
Waiting in the silent darkness to kill a man he has never met…so begins THE STALKER…a sensual suspense story about a bureaucrat whose kinky extramarital affair plunges him into a nightmare world of murder, deceit and blackmail. It begins with a cold-blooded murder in an apartment right out of the 1940s, and ends in a terrifying conflict in a bizarrely furnished mansion.
