‘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?

Yet his immediate imperative is always an unshakeable narrative grip, here set against a jaw-dropping final development that will resonate with future books in the series.

Barry Forshaw, Financial Times
Critic Reviews

The best yet of a great series, totally gripping and scary as hell.
