Fear

Dirk Kurbjuweit


ISBN 9781409175889


You'd die for your family. But would you kill for them?

Family is everything.

So what if yours was being terrorised by a neighbour - a man who doesn't listen to reason, whose actions become more erratic and sinister with each passing day? And those you thought would help - the police, your lawyer - can't help you.

You become afraid to leave your family at home alone. But there's nothing more you can do to protect them.

Is there?
