saunders helped implement legislation in california regarding stalkers and their victims. as a result of this legislation, other states and countries followed suit. it's an intersting and haunting read about various cases saunders has worked on in her long career as a prosecutor. although she does write about brief celebrity encounters (madonna, speilberg and paltrow) the more interesting stories are the ones about every day people that encounter a stalker. the lengths the stalker goes to are di ...more

This is a very interesting book. So far from my life (and hopefully always will be!) I did have sort of a hard time keeping track of who was who if I happen to set the book down for any period of time. It is pretty wild though (and sad/scarry) that stuff like this happens!

Very interesting perspective of the particular crime of stalking by someone in law who is really trying to help the victims. True stories of stalking, and it also gives some insight on how to receive help, and on what to do and what not do. I remember taking this book and reading it at a doctors appointment because I didn't want to stop reading it. Really, really good book!

Very informative book. I thoroughly enjoyed it! There are also a lot of tips inside for someone who may be experiencing stalking behavior from another individual or for someone who has went through it in the past. I would highly recommend.
