What you need to know before your trail

You’re back home after four years working abroad, new husband in tow.

You’re keen to find a place of your own. But for now you’re crashing in your big brother’s spare room.

But you never dreamed that your innocent crush might become a deadly obsession.

Or that someone is watching you.
