THE WRONG MAN--John Katzenbach--An amazing story showing the power of words to convey evil. A young man becomes obsessed by a young lady after a 'one night stand', and obsessed doesn't begin to convey the idea. Her divorced parents (and the mother's significant other) attempt to take steps to protect Ashley and as they do so are individually attacked obliquely by the obsessed and 'possessed' Michael. What could have been a cliche story of stalking turns into one of the most haunting books I've read in some time as well as thoughts regarding the ongoing questions of when the ends justify the means. In addition, THE WRONG MAN gave me new insight into the psychology of the stalker and the effects of his/her victim. A good book to read in the daylight.
