GoodReads Description: "Every Wednesday, like clockwork, the terror returns.

It seems like an ordinary Wednesday, until the phone rings. A mysterious caller with a chilling threat. Journalist Alice Henderson hangs up, ready to dismiss it as a hoax against the newspaper. But the next Wednesday, the stalker makes another move—and it becomes clear that this is all about Alice.

Someone wants her to suffer, but for what? Her articles have made her a popular local champion—could it be her past rather than her work that’s put her life in danger? Alice is determined not to give in to fear, but with the police investigation at a dead end, her boyfriend insists on hiring private investigator Matthew Hill.

With every passing Wednesday the warnings escalate, until it’s not only Alice but also her family in the stalker’s sights. As her tormentor closes in, can Alice uncover what she’s being punished for before the terrifying threats become an unthinkable reality?"

Alice Henderson is a journalist who receives a threatening call at work. This quickly escalates to a series of awful things that happen to Alice only on Wednesdays. We journey with her through the range of emotions she has dealing with being harassed. There are multiple perspectives and we see a return from Matthew - the private investigator from Teresa Driscoll's other books. I enjoy him as a character and am always happy to see him again. This book kept me up late and kept me guessing until the end!

I read this book in about 24 hours - which is an amazing fete with 4 children! It was a great book that really hooked you in on an emotional rollercoaster! It really makes you consider victims of stalking and other crimes that involve the victims being terrorized or living in fear. It would be quite the emotional strain: feeling helpless, vulnerable, angry...

There are many suspects as the story progresses and the multiple perspectives lead us in several different directions and the end had a satisfying twist!

4 stars
