Never Let You Go
A Novel

"Stevens's taut writing and chilling depiction of love twisted beyond recognition make this a compelling read." —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Disturbing, suspenseful, and just a little nerve-wracking." —Library Journal

Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started over with a new life.

Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with her own business and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When Andrew is finally released from prison, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties and left the past behind her. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded, and her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he's a different person. But has he really changed? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?

With Never Let You Go, Chevy Stevens delivers a chilling, twisting thriller that crackles with suspense as it explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.

About the Author-
  • Chevy Stevens is the author of Still Missing and Never Knowing. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a realtor. When she held open houses, she had a lot of time waiting by herself between potential buyers, and Stevens would spend this time scaring herself with all the things that could happen to her.

When she's not writing, she's hiking with her husband and her dog in the local mountains.

    Starred review from January 23, 2017
    Lindsey Nash, the narrator of this superlative psychological thriller from bestseller Stevens (Those Girls), has built a good life for herself and her teenage daughter, Sophie, in Dogwood Bay, a lakeshore town in British Columbia, since fleeing with Sophie from her abusive husband, Andrew, 11 years earlier. On the night Lindsey left, Andrew—drunk and enraged—followed them, causing a car accident that left an innocent woman dead. Andrew went to prison, but now he’s out, and Lindsey is certain he’ll make her pay for every day he spent behind bars. When the local police are unable to assist Lindsey after an increasingly frightening series of incidents (a pet bird killed, a dog poisoned, a hit-and-run), Lindsey turns for help to her friend and self-defense teacher, Marcus, a former psychiatrist with a tragic past who develops into a love interest. Stevens’s taut writing and chilling depiction of love twisted beyond recognition make this a compelling read from the first page to the last. 150,000-copy first printing; author tour. Agent: Mel Berger, William Morris Agency.

    In Stevens' (Those Girls, 2015, etc.) latest, a Canadian woman believes a decade in prison hasn't lessened her former husband's obsessive belief that they were meant to be together. Lindsey was a clerk when she fell for Andrew, a prosperous contractor. Soon she was head over heels in love with him, a man kind enough to give her out-of-work father a job as a foreman. They married. Soon, though, came incidents when Andrew inflicted emotional terror. After daughter Sophie was born, the abuse turned physical. Lindsey feared for her life. She fled, taking Sophie. In pursuit and driving drunk, Andrew killed a young woman, a crime that led to his imprisonment. In the meantime, Lindsey escaped to Dogwood Bay, a small town near Vancouver. Feeling free, she joined a support group where she met Marcus, a reserved man coping with his own tragedy, and found a boyfriend, Greg, a quiet, laid-back delivery driver. Then, sentence complete, Andrew arrived in Dogwood Bay. Andrew was a textbook abuser: charismatic, handsome, possessive, rigid, and violent. There are hints Andrew has reformed, but Lindsey is skeptical, and shadows within the narrative suggest the old Andrew is at work again. Stevens' tale isn't linear, instead shifting back and forth across 20 years, sometimes a chronicle of misdirection, more often a dissection of obsession and revenge, fear and terror. Most of the chapters are narrated by Lindsey, a haunted character, while at other times Sophie relates the tale, "too young to comprehend obsession," stumbling to reconnect with a father she's never known. The pace never slackens until a death sends the narrative spinning, hidden dangers lurking even while Lindsey worries that Sophie's youthful romance displays disturbing parallels to Lindsey's courtship with Andrew. Stevens' take on a familiar woman-pursued-by-abuser plot has sparked a fast-paced thriller with a surprise twist.
