The Stalker

The Stalker was published in the Alfred Hitchcock Magazine June 2002 edition. There are no more copies of the magazine available from the publisher but you might be able to find it through That is where I was finally able to find one.

This short story is about a young woman who escapes her abusive husband with her two small children to a small town in New Jersey. It isn’t long before she is found and stalked by a hired killer. She is befriended by one neighbor and scares another neighbor into moving out when she asked for help. The friendly neighbor offers her children a safe place to stay when she “sees” violence surrounding the woman after taking a reading with her tarot cards.
