In His Sights
Author: Kate Brennan
What if the man you'd loved for years vows, when you leave him, to destroy you? What if he transforms
into a ruthless tormentor, stealing your freedom, undermining your sanity, and threatening your safety?
This is not a fictional scenario. It is Kate Brennan's life.Kate is a well-respected writer and scholar, a
highly independent woman with simple tastes and a complicated romantic past that leave her perfectly
content with singlehood. So when she meets Paul—a wealthy, charismatic businessman with a great
deal of free time—she's wary of getting involved. Eventually, though, his polished charm and relentless
wooing win her over. Things move quickly, and it is only after the two have moved in together that Kate
discovers the serial infidelity, the unbalanced psyche, and the sordid secrets lurking under the Mr. Right
facade.Kate lets Paul into her life with trepidation, and when she ends the relationship, she finds she
can't get him out of it. With limitless resources, he dedicates himself to stalking her: he tracks her
movements, arranges for people to break into her home, interferes with her work, and even relocates to
her new neighborhood. His harassment lasts for more than a decade and, as Paul is still at large, it
continues to turn Kate's life upside down today.This visceral memoir not only lays bare the mind of a
stalker, but also shows how a smart, successful woman can fall prey to a warped and powerful man who
has the money and connections to keep her under his watchful eye. Both frightening and insightful, In His
Sights is a gripping tale of one woman's descent into the dark side of love and how she has fought—and
still struggles—to free herself.
