Format: Mass Market Paperback
This review is on The Stalker written by Joan Lowery Nixon. It is a murder mystery that takes place in the small town of Corpus Christi, Texas. It's about a stubborn 18-year-old girl named Jennifer Lee Wilcox who does not like to follow orders. One day when Jennifer comes home from school she finds out her best friend Bobbie's mother Stella Trax has been killed. The police think Bobbie killed Stella. Jennifer wants to prove Bobbie is innocent and went to a retired police officer for help on finding the real killer. Her hunt for the killer turns dangerous when she gets a mysterious phone call telling her to stop investigating. This only it made her want to find the killer and prove her friend was innocent even more. I thought the book was really good but not as good as her other books it was slower and not as exiting. If your interested in books by Joan Lowery Nixon I like "Nobody's There" and "A Deadly Game of Magic". I Thought they kept my interest better and would recommend them to anyone looking for a good mystery.

I thought that "The Stalker" was another good thriller from Joan Lowery Nixon's endless list of great mysteries! If this is going to be your first Nixon story, it'll seem totally great! But, if you've read lots of Nixon books (like me), it can't compare to most others!
The story is about a girl named Jennifer. One day, she comes home and finds out that her best friend -- Bobbie -- has supposedly killed her own mom! Jennifer knows that that can't be! So, after no one will believe her, she enlists the help of a retired cop, Lucas Maldonaldo, to help her with her detecting! As the couple come closer and closer to finding the murderer, Jennifer's life begins to end up in danger. Someone obviously doesn't want her to find them out! Can Jennifer and Lucas add up the clues and wrap up the case!? Or will the killer stop them dead in their tracks? Find out in "The Stalker!"
Also recommended: "Name of the Game Was Murder," "Who Are You," and "Nobody's There." All A+ Joan Lowery Nixon books! :)

The book " THE STALKER" is OK, but it needs more mystery. It gives too much information. Nixon needs to write about more adventure and more excitment. I would recomend this book to someone who likes a good, but not so good thrill!!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book "the Stalker" was a pretty good book. It didn't take me long to read, maybe a day or two. Joan Lowery Nixon has a style that is all her own, and from reading many of her novels, i can see it in all of them. The story always takes place in Texas, it's always about a girl, there's always a murder etc. but that doesn't mean she's a bad writer, she's probably the best mystery writer i have ever read from. i hav a collection of her books at home, and i could read her books all day long. If i had to tell someone whether or not to buy this book, i would defenitly say buy the book! you'll love the read!

Didn't realize that this was probably geared to readers of the younger generation. However, I did enjoy it and the plot was good.
