THE REVIEWS ARE IN!
Jennifer Hillier's Creep is top-of-the-line thriller writing. You better call in sick, because you're not going anywhere until you finish reading. Oh, and you might want to lock the door too. Just to be safe.
~ Jeffery Deaver, author of Carte Blanche
Psychological thrillers are tough to execute, because their authors must create stories that infiltrate readers’ minds, pulling them into the plots as more participants than observers. Hillier pulls off that sleight of narrative hand with remarkable skill.
. . . the book holds its secrets well and packs a concluding wallop.
~ Publishers Weekly
Hillier will likely have best sellers in the future thanks to her suspenseful plotting and solid character development. VERDICT: This fast-paced page-turner will keep fans of Lisa Gardner and Chelsea Cain guessing.
~ Library Journal
A "Summer's Best Reads" selection. A chilling and graphic portrayal of a sociopathic obsession.
~ Chatelaine Magazine
~ National Post
Despite the apparent prurience of the book’s subject matter, Hillier handles Sheila’s addiction with subtlety; the novel is more interested in the nature of addiction than in sex itself. Hillier’s unembellished prose moves Creep briskly along, resulting in a page-turning read.
~ Quill & Quire

Pulsing with the dark obsession of Radiohead's song "Creep", this taut thriller – Jennifer Hillier's superb debut – rockets from its seductive opening to a heart-pounding climax not easily forgotten.
IF HE CAN'T HAVE HER . . .
Dr. Sheila Tao is a professor of psychology. An expert in human behaviour. And when she began an affair with sexy, charming graduate student Ethan Wolfe, she knew she was playing with fire. Consumed by lust when they were together, riddled with guilt when they weren't, she knows the three-month fling with her teaching assistant has to end. After all, she's engaged to a kind and loving investment banker who adores her, and she's taking control of her life. But when she attempts to end the affair, Ethan Wolfe won't let her walk away.
. . . NOBODY ELSE CAN.
Ethan has plans for Sheila, plans that involve posting a sex video that would surely get her fired and destroy her prestigious career. Plans to make her pay for rejecting him. And as she attempts to counter his every threatening move without her colleagues or her fiancé discovering her most intimate secrets, a shattering crime rocks Puget Sound State University: a female student, a star athlete, is found stabbed to death. Someone is raising the stakes of violence, sex, and blackmail . . . and before she knows it, Sheila is caught in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game with the lover she couldn't resist—who is now the monster who won't let her go.
