But Harry never shows up.Suddenly, Ruby's life has fallen apart, and she's lost everything. Harry won't answer her calls, and she's fired from her job. She finds a cheap apartment in a run-down part of town, all the while wondering what happened to Harry.Just as Ruby thinks she's hit rock bottom, strange and menacing things start to happen--someone is sneaking into her apartment, and someone is following her home late at night--and she is going to have to fight for her survival.

My Review: This was such a great read! It is so hard to find original thrillers and this one was definitely a take that I hadn't seen before. The writing was great, very entertaining and kept me interested. It is told through two POV's, both of which were well done and kept me interested. This was super fast paced and I loved the flow. Overall this was a great book. I knocked it down a star for the little bit of predictability but don't let that dissuade you.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
