Violent Obsession

The Stalker Next Door- The amazing true story of lust, fixation, courage and survival

By Jackie Eigner and Simon Gullifer


To her, he was just the boy next door. To him she was something more. They were never lovers. They were never friends. They were never anything more than neighbours. But one day that would all change.

To her, he was just the boy next door. To him she was something more. They were never lovers. They were never friends. They were never anything more than neighbours. But one day that would all change.

If this story were not true it would be unbelievable. This is the story of Joan Eigner, a devoted wife and loving mother, and her struggle to survive twenty-four years of torment at the hands of a cruel and remorseless stalker. This is also a story of courage, endurance and strength of character. It details the sufferance that victims of crime often experience in their quest for justice.

Informed by insightful and poignant interviews with Joan, her family members, police officers and lawyers, Eigner and Gullifer take us on Joan’s harrowing journey to justice.

I was given your book (Violent Obsession) to read by a great man whom I also consider a friend ... Your mother’s story is chilling, emotionally moving and the frustration palpable.  She is an amazingly brave woman who paved the way (unfortunately) for those who were to come after.
