I ran blindly into the store, sliding in my greasy shoes, knocking cans onto the floor, ramming into shelves. I fumbled for the phone. I picked up the receiver. I could feel Devin right behind me. I dialed nine, one.. His hand slammed the phone down. “I hoped it wouldn’t come to this,” he said. Frances works the night shift at a local convenience store, dividing her time between restocking shelves and working on her art. Her routine is broken one night when Devin comes into the store. He claims to be the son of a famous local artist and offers her advice on her drawings. Although he seems to know way too much about her, Frances decides, against the advice of her boyfriend, that he is odd but harmless. By the time she realizes the danger she is in, Devin is completely obsessed with her and convinced that if he can’t have her, no one will. Frances will be forced to use all her strength to escape from Devin. Vicki Grant is also the author of The Puppet Wrangler and Quid Pro Quo.
