The Book
481 pages
Berkley Paperback Edition

Martin Stillwater has a vivid imagination. It charms his loving wife, delights his two little daughters and gives him all the inspiration he needs to write his highly successful mystery novels. But maybe Martin's imagination is a bit too vivid....
One rainy afternoon, a terrific incident makes him question his grip on reality. A stranger breaks into his house, accusing Martin of stealing his wife, his children - and his life.
Claiming to be the real Martin Stillwater, the intruder threatens to take what's rightfully his. The police think he's a figment of Martin's imagination. But Martin and his family have no choice but to believe the stranger's threat. And run for their lives.
But wherever they go-wherever they hide- he finds them

My Opinion
This is a great read.

It is scary, engrossing, well written, taut, suspense filled and everything a good mystery/thriller should be.
The plot is so strong, superman couldn't poke holes in it. From the first line, you are pulled into this wonderful book and can't stop until you finish.
It's brilliant. When we reach the climax, you can practically hear rising organ music like in the movies and the big reveal is... huge.

(I do have one question. If Alfie could connect to Martin, why couldn't Martin connect to Alfie)

Great read.

Recommend: to people who like mystery/thriller novels and don't mind length.
