From the author of Don't Look Now comes a propulsive psychological thriller in which a single choice can be the difference between surviving a serial killer or becoming his next victim.
Gem Golding only has two choices. A stranger holds a knife to her skin, his demands terrifying in the deserted parking garage. Should she surrender? Or should she fight back?
This attacker is no ordinary criminal. This night, like so many of them, is all a game to him. He makes the rules, the rules that determine whether his victims live or die. Rules that will set Gem's fate in motion. He's waiting for her to decide.
But how can you win the game when the rules are a mystery? What if surrendering is the worst thing you can do? What if fighting back will kill you?
Two choices. Two outcomes. And only one way for Gem to survive.
Following both possibilities to their hair-raising conclusions, The Victim is the perfect book for any fan of psychological thrillers.
