An act of kindness leads to a fatal attraction when rescuer turns pursuer in this chilling psychological thriller from Shamus Award-winning author Michael Allegretto. Valerie Rowe, an attractive young artist living in Denver with her eight year-old son, Matthew, is unfortunately at the wrong place at the wrong time when she meets Leonard Tully. Leonard, a disturbed young man who lives with his wheelchair-bound, religious-fanatic mother, inadvertently saves Valerie from a purse snatcher when he literally crashes into the mugger on a busy sidewalk. In gratitude, Valerie invites Leonard to lunch. But Leonard, shy, lonely, and a prisoner of his overbearing mother, misinterprets kindness as affection and begins a twisted and relentless courtship with the devious cunning of a hunter going after his prey. At first Valerie feels sympathy for Leonard, who seems harmless enough ... until the phone calls and flowers lead to arson and death. With intentions more murderous than honorable, Leonard meticulously devises a plan to ensure he and Valerie are together by eliminating anyone who stands in his way.
