The Watcher by Jo Robertson


Dec 20, 2015  

Forensic psychiatrist Kate Myers believes the killer of two teenage girls in Bigler County, California, is the same man who savagely murdered her twin sister over fifteen years ago. Working with a single-minded tenacity, she sets out to prove it.

This is one of the best thrillers I’ve read in long time. The author doesn’t rush you through the story—you’re given time to get to know the two main characters and the villain—but everything you learn increases the tension and danger. By the way, the villian gave me the creeps. The story weaves in past and present. There are a number of unexpected twists and turns with an explosive ending. About the last 100 pages or so had me glued. There was no way I could put the book down at that point. If it ever becomes a movie, I know I will be sitting on the edge of my seat.
