Watching this dominating and smart sexual predator close in on Reeve, and being helpless to stop him, makes this novel genuinely creepy. Especially when no one else is even aware of his existence. The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton is psychological suspense at it's best--it's dark and compelling, but not too disturbing or graphic. But what really makes this memorable thriller a cut above the rest is Reeve herself. What a great character! For all her fragility, Reeve is surprisingly tough. She's also smart and resourceful. And I really liked her. She's the type of heroine you could write an entire series around...and I hope Norton does.
