He could be any man, any respectable, ordinary man.

But he's not.

This man watches the five Herbert girls--Beauty, Mim, Stevie, Fancy, and Autumn--with disturbing fascination.

Unaware of his scrutiny and his increasingly agitated and forbidden thoughts about them, the sisters go on with their ordinary everyday lives--planning, arguing, laughing, and crying--as if nothing bad could ever breach the safety of their family.

In alternating points of view, Norma Fox Mazer manages to interweave the lives of predator and prey in this unforgettable psychological thriller.
