Nobody Believes Me

Overview

Even if Lynn Marchette hadn't been looking for love, the devastatingly handsome Greg Alter would be hard to resist. And she doesn't. She abandons herself to the passion that Greg stirs in her. And tries to ignore the little doubts, the fleeting chill, the subtle fear that he arouses...Are his overtures aggressive? Are his gifts double-edged? Are his sexy whispers threatening? "But he talked like that from the start," insists Lynn's best friend. "You enjoyed it. You told me." Lynn begins to feel suffocated. And disturbed. She's got to stand up for herself. She breaks it off.... But Greg won't take no for an answer. "The man wants to see you again, so he keeps calling," reasons Lynn's brother. She almost believes him. Until a life-threatening letter from Greg—written in her own hand—shatters the remnants of her self-possession. Now everyone even the police, begins to doubt her. And Lynn must face the soul-shaking truth: "nobody believes me..."

The gripping tale of a woman's chilling realization that, in welcoming the man of her dreams into her heart, she may just have embraced a nightmare. "An absorbing thriller . . . Katz does an extraordinary job."--Kirkus Review.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Greg Alter, the love interest in Katz's formulaic first novel, seems too good to be true. He's gallant, handsome, generous and a sexually adventurous lover to boot. Not surprisingly, Boston TV talk-show host Lynn Marchette can't believe her luck in attracting such a good man just when everything else in her life is also going her way. Her program is under consideration for national syndication, and she's feeling and looking better than ever. So, naturally, trouble comes hurtling into her life with the force of a speeding bowling ball, threatening to knock down her dreams one by one. The problem is that Katz's approach is so heavy-handed that Greg and much else in this Perils of Pauline -like psycho-thriller turns out to be too bad to be true, leaching the plot and characters of believability. While it takes Lynn a while to figure out that Greg is really a Date from Hell, most readers will clue in a lot faster, and will find Greg's campaign to harass and humiliate Lynn lacking in suspense, psychological edge and engagement. Even when Lynn's friends dismiss her complaints about Greg and question her sanity, the effect is to create not Gaslight -style suspicion about the heroine's state of mind but only the belief that she needs new friends. The irony is that Lynn herself is a well-wrought character, skillfully depicted as she's caught in a downward spiral of doubt, insecurity, self-hatred and shame. It's only too bad that she's also caught in such an implausible story. (June)
Library Journal
Lynn Marchette's life is glorious. Her Boston television talk show is being considered for national syndication, and while interviewing in L.A. she meets the perfect man, Greg Alter. He's handsome, suave, thoughtful, and just wonderful. But Greg pressures Lynn to do things she doesn't want to do-get a tattoo, wear crotchless panties, have sex in semipublic places-so she tries to end the relationship. But Greg won't stop; he begins a series of secret attacks on her character, her career, and even her life. Lynn suffers not only Greg's torments but also the doubts of her friends and the police, who can't believe that this great guy could be guilty of anything. Much like Ronald Munson's Fan Mail (Dutton, 1993), this first novel bristles with suspense as it tells the tale of a beautiful woman in the public eye who has attracted the wrong kind of admirer. Recommended for public libraries.-Rebecca House Stankowski, Purdue Univ. Calumet Lib., Hammond, Ind.
