The Stalker



When it’s cold and dark outside, I personally can’t think of anything better than snuggling up on the sofa with a great detective novel. Alex Gray’s DSI William Lorimer series has long been a favourite of mine (and I’m not alone, it has sold more than a million copies worldwide!), but her latest, The Stalker, is possibly one of her most compelling. William Lorimer is the best kind of detective; he’s whip-smart and relentless, but he’s also deeply kind and has enormous amounts of integrity. He gets into some pretty tight spots (especially in this novel) so your heart is really in your mouth when you’re reading, but you do feel fundamentally safe in the knowledge that justice will prevail somehow . . . even if you’re a few chapters from the end and can’t see how it’s going to! That’s why it’s the perfect companion for a bleak November evening. And the other brilliant thing about the Lorimer series is that you can dive in at any point – you don’t have to have read the previous books to follow the plot. So whether you’re a die-hard Alex Gray fan like me, or whether you’re coming to the series for the very first time, I highly recommend you pick up The Stalker. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
