The unforgettable novel that inspired the classic film.
After a messy breakup, Allie Jones finds herself living alone in her New York apartment with no one to share her bed with - and more urgently, no one to share her rent. The solution is obvious - so she advertises for a roommate. And Hendra Carlson seems perfect - shy, quiet... safe. But soon Hendra's disturbing envy of Allie's looks and social life becomes unsettling. She wears Allie's clothes, even buys a wig in Allie's colour and style.
And then the obscene phone calls start. Allie's credit cards vanish, and she discovers Hendra is leading a dangerous double life. For Hendra's twisted admiration has no limits, the nightmare has just begun, and there will be a bloody price to pay...
