Publisher Comments:

What if the man you'd loved for years vows, when you leave him, to destroy you? What if he transforms into a ruthless tormentor, stealing your freedom, undermining your sanity, and threatening your safety?

This is not a fictional scenario. It is Kate Brennan's life.

Kate is a well-respected writer and scholar, a highly independent woman with simple tastes and a complicated romantic past that leave her perfectly content with singlehood. So when she meets Paul — a wealthy, charismatic businessman with a great deal of free time — she's wary of getting involved. Eventually, though, his polished charm and relentless wooing win her over. Things move quickly, and it is only after the two have moved in together that Kate discovers the serial infidelity, the unbalanced psyche, and the sordid secrets lurking under the Mr. Right facade.

Kate lets Paul into her life with trepidation, and when she ends the relationship, she finds she can't get him out of it. With limitless resources, he dedicates himself to stalking her: he tracks her movements, arranges for people to break into her home, interferes with her work, and even relocates to her new neighborhood. His harassment lasts for more than a decade and, as Paul is still at large, it continues to turn Kate's life upside down today.

This visceral memoir not only lays bare the mind of a stalker, but also shows how a smart, successful woman can fall prey to a warped and powerful man who has the money and connections to keep her under his watchful eye. Both frightening and insightful, In His Sights is a gripping tale of one woman's descent into the dark side of love and how she has fought — and still struggles — to free herself.

Review:

"Brennan (a pseudonym) conveys her own fear and mounting sense of physical discomfort so well that we feel it, too. We also feel her inner strength....A remarkable and very powerful story." Booklist (Starred Review)

I read a few chapters on the aol website and was absolutely riveted. Im a poor student and I cant really afford the book, so I went to Borders and finished it in like two hours. What Kate describes is something that one can only imagine happening in a freaky fiction story, to think that this is how she lives is frightening. I wanted to reach out to her and say "Hey, Im here for you, you can count on me, I am a friend." I cant imagine the fear that she lives in, and I admire her for how strong she is. I probably would have killed the bastard, just point blank came up and shot him. Three cheers for Kate!
