Jillian Talbot, a bestselling mystery writer in Greenwich Village, is receiving strange, vaguely threatening Valentine cards and gifts in the first two weeks of February. Her “secret admirer” is actually a stalker, a man from her past with a grudge against her–and a deadly agenda. Soon, Jillian will meet him on his terrible day of judgment. His triumphant day. Her darkest day. Valentine’s Day.
Source for the 2001 Warner Bros. film, VALENTINE is now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Kobo Books.
