A distressed young woman arrives at the police station station claiming her friend has been abducted, and that the man threatened to return and “claim her next”. Detectives Carrigan and Miller are drawn into a terrifying new world of cyberstalking – where the threat of online intimidation, hacking, and control is ever-present, and disturbing contemporary themes and dark psychology are explored with Stav Sherez’s customary skill.
