This Girl Who : She stalks the stalker. Will he turn his murderous way on her?
A murder charge brings a cop and a nosy news reporter into her life as she deals with genetic changes and a masked stalker whose next victim could be someone she knows.
She must find the stalker before more victims fall. Will her new abilities help or hinder her chase?

Sammy shrugged. She could go to the country and find a quiet place where only the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels would see what kind of freak she was. There might even be a big tree, big enough to put a house on one of the branches, and the grass would be a cool green carpet where she could lie. She wouldn’t even need any shoes. There’d be apple trees too, and when she was hungry she’d pick an apple as big as a pumpkin.
“Sam, let’s not do anything rash.”
“You did all the tests, and nothing’s changed.”
“It’s been what? Ten days?”
Strange, how it seemed both longer and shorter than that. The days in the apartment seemed to go on forever, but the sound of Tatiana’s neck cracking seemed moments ago. How many times had she awakened to that sound? She had dreamed of the tentacles turning on her as if they had a mind of their own and decided to take retribution for her sins.
“There are other tests I can run.”
Was he afraid to lose his prized lab rat? “Thought you did all the tests?”
