I am looking for books where someone is after someone in a big way. She gets away from him only to have him come after her again. Whether it's obsession or stalking.....someone on the run for their life. The more intense the better. I don't get into political thrillers, nor do I want a lot of sappy romance. I want intensity and someone that has to use their mind to outsmart the killer. Thanks for any recommendations!!

C Byler,
There is a book by Dean Koontz called Intensity which sounds pretty close to what you are describing. I also read one by Jeffrey Deaver but am drawing a blank on the title. It was one of his earlier books though. I remember that.

Hope this helps!

Thanks FashionChic! Intensity is my favorite book of all times!! I have tried and tried unsucessfully to find another one like it. If you somehow remember the name of the Jeffrey Deaver book, please let me know :)

Try The Chosen Few by Joseph DiLalla and Roy Eaton. It is fast paced, has lots of action and a surprise ending. The author's note following the last chapter will blow you away! The plot is based on a real discovery made many years ago and kept hush hush...until now.

You might want to look into Richard Matheson's 'Hunted Past Reason'.

Then there's the original stalker story: Richard Connell's 'The Most Dangerous Game'. The story of a man who crashes on an island and is hunted by world's greatest hunter. That one is old enough you can probably read it for free online, but it still hold up.

If you are seeking intensity, suspense, and a character on the run for his life, then "Chasing Hunter" is the book for you. It is my debut novel, and has been getting great reviews on Amazon. I'd love to hear your thoughts if you end up reading it.
Sincerely,
Cort Malone

I read one a few years ago that still freaks me out! I read it in one night... It's called The Cave by Anne MacLean Matthews. It's not on Amazon, but look for it at your library perhaps?

Lisa Gardner's "Hide" fits that description to a T. Really enjoyed the story when I read it and am definitely doing a reread soon.

In His Sights by Kate Brennan is a true story of being stalked. And he's still out there...

Stalkers! The Bloody Point Stories, eight stories two with relentless stalkers.

Koontz's The Good Guy is similar to Intensity but with the addition of his screwball humor.
Tick Tock was also a solid chase thriller,too.

A Killer Story depicts 4 reporters being chased by a detective who's on to their crimes of murder, building burning, air plane wrecking and chasing a witness to murder for knowledge of their crimes. Miraculous New Life for Ellie portrays a girl chased by fear and trouble as she desperately turns to God, gets healed, survives a stamped of wildebeest, saves a child from cheetahs, gets lost in the Alaska woods and her parents divorce causes her even more problems.

In Unholy Domain, my new speculative thriller, a college student is pursued by two murderous organizations. It's only fair to point out that Unholy Domain is both violent and sexual. Although most readers enjoy the story, a few have been offended. The pace is unrelenting and the scenes engage the senses, so it might not be appropriate for everyone.

Try HIT AND RUN by Lawrence Block. Professional hit man John
Keller is being framed for the assassination of a black presidential
candidate. He's lost most of his money, can't use his credit cards,
his face is being shown on national TV, and his best friend and
confidante Dot has been murdered. It's definitely the best Keller so far.

I read Intensity and wow it sure is! Dean Koontz is my inspiration... Lila

Min's Monster really is a scary book, and does fall under what you are looking for. That is one I would strongly suggest as well. Wow, I still have nightmares from it. It is well told!

dealhunter says:
I really like Richard Laymon. "among the missing" is the first book that comes to mind. His books are filled with people being stalked and/or kidnapped and having to fight for their lives in unimaginable ways. You will become addicted to his books like I did. Do a search for him and check his writings out. A lot of his books are on the 4 for 3 promotion.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 29, 2008 2:58:39 PM PDT
If you like intense books that involve stalkers, you absolutely have to read The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen and Beneath the Skin by Nicci French. Both of these books are amazing and they'll keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

I don't mean to offend anyone, as I know some on this board think authors shouldn't self-promote, but I'm a film major and our project entails getting the message out by any media method we can. I wanted to see what would happen if I promoted my romantic thriller (which is now a screenplay) here. It's called "Which Man" and is available on Amazon. By the way, "Which Man" has all the elements -- stalking, chasing, romance, and much more.
