Logan is determined to make Delilah the heroine in his twisted fantasy and he'll do anything to get what he wants.
Delilah is done with the men in her life controlling her. If Loganwon't let her go. . .she'll make him.
"Sutanto has crafted a page-turning work of suspense that questions the line between romantic 'research' and stalking in the age of the internet, analyzing the roles played by abuse, misogyny, racism, and violence in contemporary relationships." - Booklist
"Set against a Northern California private school backdrop, the sensational plot is riddled with twists that come at a furious pace. . . A suspenseful page-turner." - KirkusReviews
"This tense, quick-moving thriller is also a thought-provoking story about the different shapes of abuse. Fans of high-drama fiction with a dark edge, like Karen McManus's One of Us Is Lying or Gretchen McNeil's #murdertrending, will be hooked." - School Library Journal

Jesse Q. Sutanto grew up shuttling back and forth between Indonesia, Singapore, and Oxford, and considers all three places her home. She has a Masters from Oxford University, but has yet to figure out how to say that without sounding obnoxious. She has forty-two first cousins and thirty aunties and uncles, many of whom live just down the road. When she's not writing, she's gaming with her husband (mostly FPS), or making a mess in the kitchen with her two daughters. She is theauthor of The Obsession and The New Girl.
