He’s At Your Door : Karen Rainey lives a sheltered life on the edge of the city. For the last five years, she has rarely left the home unless it was unavoidable. She has her food and anything else she needs delivered to the front door. She works from home to avoid venturing outside.
But Karen isn’t agoraphobic. She’s terrified of her ex-boyfriend, Zach, who is serving a life sentence in prison for a string of bank robberies after Karen testified against him. With the constant threat that Zach might send someone to find and kill her, Karen keeps a low profile.
To aid her in paying the rent each month, Karen takes in the occasional housemate, opting for students from the local university. Her current housemate, Beth, is a young student who has no idea about Karen’s past.
But when a mysterious package is left on her doorstep, it sends Karen’s world into turmoil.
Has Zack found her?
Isolated and frightened, Karen befriends Beth but refuses to tell her everything about her past.
Trapped inside their home, Karen and Beth soon begin to lose their minds.
But is the threat really outside or is it closer to home?
“I live just outside of downtown Phoenix, Arizona in a two-bedroom one-bathroom house I can only just afford to rent. My home is too close to the city, driving up the cost of housing in the area, so much so it forces me to take in a college student from time to time to keep my strict budget intact. Fortunately, I have a locked-in fixed rental agreement that won’t be changing anytime soon. At least I hope it won’t.
I sometimes wonder if it even matters where I live. I don’t leave this house unless I have no other choice. Most of my time is spent plugged in online, set between paid employment and pointless activities. Both eat up the hours until I fall asleep and forget about it all. It’s not exactly the life I imagined having at thirty-five.”
