Awakened by her growling dog, Loren Waters finds herself alone, unarmed, and in danger ... Footsteps on the porch, a shadow outside her bedroom window, and the sound of the door being opened by someone uninvited, cast Loren into a state of unspeakable terror. Trying to absorb what happens next, leaves her physically and mentally wounded. Shocked, speechless and inconsolable, Loren struggles to give Officers Carter and Zimmerman the facts behind the crime. Caught up in a broken justice system, Loren fights for her safety, privacy, and right to a normal life... Now Loren is afraid because she knows that out there, in some dark corner, her stalker is watching. Feeling unsafe, Loren lives looking over her shoulder. Why can't the police protect her? Why are people close to her reluctant to help? Disillusioned by the system, Loren considers taking justice into her own hands. A first-hand experience of victims' rights, or lack thereof, keeps Loren in the halls of domestic violence and criminal court. Feeling threatened and alone, she arms herself with knowledge, and sets out to prove the case against her stalker. As violence escalates, Officers Carter and Zimmerman discover a surprisingly complex web of deception. How will it all unravel?
