About the Book

A GUARDIAN AND SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR, 2017

'A Silence of the Lambs for the internet age.' Ian Rankin

'Utterly riveting and truly terrifying.' Laura Wilson, Guardian

When a distressed young woman arrives at their station claiming her friend has been abducted, and that the man threatened to come back and ‘claim her next’, Detectives Carrigan and Miller are thrust into a terrifying new world of stalking and obsession.

Taking them from a Bayswater hostel, where backpackers and foreign students share dorms and failing dreams, to the emerging threat of online intimidation, hacking, and control, The Intrusions explores disturbing contemporary themes with all the skill and dark psychology that Stav Sherez’s work has been so acclaimed for.

Under scrutiny themselves, and with old foes and enmities re-surfacing, how long will Carrigan and Miller have to find out the truth behind what these two women have been subjected to?

The Devil's Playground (2004), his debut, was described by James Sallis as 'altogether extraordinary, it introduces a major new talent', and was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasy Dagger Award.

“Sherez is now one of the most humane and original voices in crime fiction.”

“One of the most distinctive and intelligent British crime writers ... utterly riveting and truly terrifying. Highly recommended, with the caveat that you may never look at your computer in quite the same way again.”
- Laura Wilson, Guardian
