Melanie Joan Hall is a bestselling author in a bind, in this third Sunny Randall investigation, following Perish Twice. Hall's publisher needs her to tour on behalf of her newest blockbuster, and she needs a bodyguard-cum-escort to protect her from an overbearing ex-husband whose presence unnerves her to the point of hysteria. Sunny begins to sense that Melanie Joan's ex—a psychotherapist—is not your basic stalker, and when an incident at a book signing leaves the ex bloodied and the author unconscious, Sunny tries to crack the case from the inside. Sunny enters therapy, only to discover some disturbing truths about herself, while also putting her life on the line. An MWA Grand Master and the author of more than 70 books, Robert Parker is best remembered for his Edgar Award–winning series featuring the private detective with no first name—Spenser, inspiration for the ABC television series Spenser: For Hire. Parker later introduced this series with police chief Jesse Stone and PI Sunny Randall.

"Parker turns in his strongest mystery in years.... Parker writes about experiences close to his own, delivering sharp portraits of publishing types and fans.... With layers of psychological revelation, plenty of action, the welcome return of Sunny's supporting crew ... and as usual, prose as tight as a drumhead, this is grade-A Parker."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The smart plot has the Boston private eye on a national book tour with a best-selling author who is being stalked by her former husband, an unethical and possibly unhinged psychiatrist. The situation proves ideal for Parker's patented brand of knowing humor, yielding glossy snapshots of dithering book dealers, dollar-driven publishers and awe-struck fans, and one very nice full-length portrait of Melanie Joan Hall, a big-league author so shrewd about her career yet modest about her talent ... you can't begrudge her her diamonds.... Even at their lightest and brightest, the confidential exchanges between Sunny and her client are rich with insight into painful issues of marital control and emotional dominance."—NYTBR
