THE LIFE RUINER
Ten years ago, Rachel Stone’s life was destroyed by a stalker, Alan Griffin, to the point where she was sectioned with chronic anorexia. With the help of a geeky friend, she paid a hacker on the dark web to plant paedophilic pictures on Griffin’s computer, and he went to prison.
Now, she’s rebuilt her life. She’s qualified as a nurse, has a three-year-old daughter, and is in a new relationship. But someone is stalking her again. Her phone, her emails, her social media are hacked. Her wages are stolen from her bank account.
Rachel believes it’s Griffin, out of prison and looking for revenge. She needs to find him, to make him leave her alone — she will not let him destroy everything again. But as Rachel is drawn into the hunt, she realises that something even more horrific is happening, something that makes her confront the childhood that has lingered like a ghost over her life, and forces her to face the truth about her supposed new life.
