By Elizabeth Haynes

Catherine Bailey är ung, singel och festar hårt med sina vänner på helgerna. Känner hon sig attraherad av en guy tvekar hon inte att ge sig in i leken. males när hon träffar Lee blir det snabbt allvar. Han är snygg, karismatisk och spännande – det är nästan för bra för att vara sant. Inte bara Catherine utan också alla hennes väninnor faller som käglor. Vilket kap!

Deras ardour är himlastormande, Lee uppvaktar Catherine som ingen guy tidigare gjort, males snart får hon uppleva hans dåliga humör och en skrämmande brutalitet. Vem är han egentligen? När kommer han att höra av sig härnäst? Vad sysslar han egentligen med?

Att Lee är en guy med makt står klart. Deras relation blir alltmer oförutsägbar och Catherine känner sig osäker, hon har en kuslig känsla av att någon rotar bland hennes saker. Inte lämnade hon fönstret öppet? Och inte låg boken där när hon gick until eventually jobbet i morse? Hon kontrollerar gång på gång att fönster är stängda och dörren är låst när hon går ut. Och sedan kontrollerar hon igen och sedan en gång until. Tvångstankar och ritualer tar över hennes liv, stjäl hennes tid och inre ro. Catherine känner sig hotad until livet.

Långsamt bryts hon ner. Catherine förvandlas från en festglad och självsäker ung kvinna until eventually ett nervvrak med tvångsbeteenden utan någon som helst självkänsla. Hon försöker tala med goda vänner om det som händer males blir inte trodd – de känner Lee och dyrkar honom. Inte skulle han bete sig på det sättet? Hennes liv blir outhärdligt, hon litar inte på någon, har ingen att vända sig till.

Catherine ser until slut ingen annan utväg än att fly. males det hon tror sig ha undkommit en gång för alla kommer att upprepa sig.
