Title: The Stalker
Author: Carol Ellis
Published: March 1, 1996
Publisher: Scholastic Paperbacks
Pages: 176
Summary: 

Janna loves to be in the limelight, and she’s always dreaming of the attention a life on stage would give her. However, she thinks she is being followed by a stalker who is playing games with her mind, and her life. Is the stalker trying to get closer to Janna or is he making sure no-one else will?  (fantasticfiction.co.uk)

Dun dun dun!  I think the stalker topic is ever-poignant and never loses it’s creep factor.  It just depends on how well it’s done and what the author’s done different that’ll either make it stand out or sink into the thriller mists to be lost forever.
