Anonymity by John Nicholl
Mia is a best selling author but has started getting untraceable emails from an admirer.
An admirer who is making threats to her and her young daughter. He promises to leave
her alone if she declares online her love for her number one fan. When the emails start
again only this time with more at stake, Mia decides she has to do something about it.
He has told her not to go to the police or he will harm both of them so her options are
limited and Mia is afraid for the life of her daughter. Grav is a detective currently on sick
leave and has also received an email making threats against him and his daughter who
is now a lawyer. This is the fourth and last book in the DI Gravel series but happily
stands alone. I liked Grav and I liked Mia despite her naivety. John has excellent plots and
twists along the way although this one is a crime book rather than psychological thriller.
We learn early on who the perpetrator is and the plot is how he is going to be caught.
I won’t spoil anything other than to say hiding in plain sight is a clever ploy.
An enjoyable read.

When Mia, a successful novelist, is targeted by a stalker, her life begins to unravel.
Unaware that the predatory psychopath has placed cameras in her home, the stalker sends untraceable emails, including photos of her and her four-year-old daughter, demanding Mia performs outlandish tasks, threatening dire consequences if she refuses or approaches the police.
As the pressure builds, Adam, Mia’s sister's boyfriend, offers to accompany her to stay in Italy with her parents. But when the villa is burnt down, Mia fears the stalker has followed her and decides to return to Wales.
Meanwhile, the police are investigating the murder of three women in the area, and when DI Gravel’s daughter is threatened, he takes matters into his own hands.
With his health failing and his career coming to an end, just how far will Gravel go to protect his daughter and catch a vicious killer?
