Beth gaped at the screen, the few sentences striking terror
in her soul. I KNOW YOU SAW ME, BETH. I GOT EDDY, NOW I'LL GET YOU!
Stumbling from the seat, she ran from her apartment, not sure of
what to do. She had seen someone doing something very, very bad

"What in bloody hell happened to you?" he said angrily.
She looked at him with fear in her eyes. "He's out for my
