A cracking premise, straightforward and concise writing, and a story that just gallops along. Derek Flint lives with his mother and spies on the very people he reassures when he fits their home CCTV. He is suspected of crimes that are increasing in number and violence, is he innocent or guilty? This is Lisa Stone’s second novel, she also writes non-fiction under the name of Cathy Glass highlighting her compelling fostering stories. If you love reading her tales of fostering, then do take a look at her novels, as she has the same uncomplicated writing style that takes you straight to the heart of a story. ‘Stalker’ is a readable tale, easy to consume in one sitting, propelling your thoughts one way and then the other, as the tale comes to a close were you right, or very wrong about Derek?

A dark and twisty tale that will keep you on your toes and unable to put this book down.

I loved this story about loner security man Derek Flint. He lives alone with his mother and has no real interests outside of his work, it is pretty much all he is interested in. Derek is very disciplined with his work and has very high standards, he is secretive and keeps himself to himself making him a really interesting character. The story takes a dark turn when we learn more about what Derek is doing during his workday and when he goes home making this reader uneasy. Just as you begin to think things could not get worse, they really do and the author has plenty of surprises in store for the reader.... Read Full Review

Edel Waugh

Stone has created a thought-provoking story by taking something integral to our everyday lives and turning it into something dark and twisted.

The central premise of this book - that we could be under surveillance without our knowledge - is a real thought-provoker. Our lives are becoming more and more dependent on technology to protect us: Stone takes that fact and turns it on us. What we believe is there for our security could in fact be being used to put us in harm's way.

Whilst the initial plot really caught my imagination, I'm afraid none of the protagonists did. We weren't really given a chance to get to know and sympathize with the victims, and the stalker of the title was quite rightly a deeply distasteful person. I don't think this distracted from the storyline until the twist as the end which I feel would have worked better if I'd had some shred of empathy with his character.... Read Full Review

An entertaining thriller that you'll race through and enjoy, but don't expect the characters to stay with you for a long time afterwards. Perfect book for settling down to in an evening.

Stalker is an entertaining and at times very tense thriller about Derek, a self-employed middle-aged fellow who installs security systems in people's homes, whilst secretly watching them to maintain a feeling of being a part of their lives. The plot is fast-paced and satisfyingly gripping, and it's good to have a protagonist/semi-villain whose motives are, in a way, pure (though not totally pure, obviously - just in his own internal logic).

My main issue is with the characters themselves. Derek is by far the most interesting of them (as he should be), but beyond that the two police officers, Beth and Matt, are instantly forgettable, and the three real villains are more like pantomime villains than captivating bad guys....
