    HE LOVES YOU. HE CONTROLS YOU. HE'LL NEVER LET YOU GO.


    He's been looking in the windows again. Messing with cameras. Leaving notes.
    Supposed to be a refuge. But death got inside.


    When Katie Straw's body is pulled from the waters of the local suicide spot, the police decide it's an open-and-shut case. A standard-issue female suicide.

    But the residents of Widringham women's refuge where Katie worked don't agree. They say it's murder.

    Will you listen to them?

    An addictive literary page-turner about a crime as shocking as it is commonplace, KEEPER will leave you reeling long after the final page is turned.
