The Devil You Know by Terry Tyler - Book Review - Whispering Stories
The investigation becomes even more personal — and dangerous — when a man dressed in black begins spying on her at night from the fire escape outside her apartment window. Is the peeping Tom the man who killed Lianne 11 years earlier, or just another maladjusted male exercising his pathologies on a female victim? The novel further dramatizes both the anonymity and intimacy of male violence against women by keeping Evie and the reader in a state of suspense and fear. Evie knows that the law is supposed to protect her from male violence, but her life experience — like that of her mother and friends — tells a different story.
When a potential candidate literally appears at her window, she discovers what so many women learn: the police are either unable or unwilling to protect them. The Devil You Know explores the tangled emotional and ideological roots of violence against women with subtlety and humour. More impressively, it does so while delivering the suspense and narrative pace of a good thriller.

She lives in St. This novel grips you from its close-your-curtains prologue to its bite-your-nails climax.
Also packed with priceless moments of dark humor and slightly skewed pithy pronouncements. Full of surprises, this author has managed to create a novel that is sometimes scary, definitely frightening, smartly written. As it nears its climax, readers will dread turning the pages for fear of what comes next. Hooked readers will silently implore Evie to refrain from entering a basement or a cabin in the woods in pursuit of a story—and a killer.
