But as the police widen their search for her attacker, menacing notes start arriving. And brave is not what she feels any longer. Someone has decided to rip her life apart, then kick her when she's down. But is it a stranger or someone much closer to home? In fact, is there anyone she can now trust? When her family and friends are drawn into the stalker's focus - with terrifying consequences - the choice becomes simple. Fight back, or lose the people she loves the most ...'Are you scared yet, Livia?'
