I am a huge fan of this authors books so couldn’t wait to read her new stand alone novel.
Hannah is such a lovely person. I was really happy for her that she had decided to break away from the ties of her family and venture out into the big world and put herself and her career first. Having now finished the novel though, all I can say is that I really wish she had stayed at home!
I keep thinking this author can’t shock me anymore than she already has done but boy did she up the anti in this book. The way the baddie killed some of his victims, all I can say is that it sent some proper chills to my spine. It made me want to go and take a shower afterwards just to cleanse my mind and undo some of what I had read. Certainly don’t advise reading it before bed unless you want nightmares if you are on the more sensitive side.
This is one of those stories where right from the start we know who the one behind all the horrible killings is. Sadly the characters don’t. It felt like I was at a panto as I wanted to keep screaming to the characters who it was but then where would the fun in that be if they found out. It certainly makes for a gripping read though waiting for them to realise.
The Watcher is an extremely dark and enthralling read. Even though there were parts that I don’t think I can ever un see from my mind, I couldn’t get enough or turn the pages fast enough. If you love a psychological thriller/suspense that will shock and mess with your head, then look no further.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
