When this novel appeared a few years ago in hardcover, I said in a review: "Wilson may flat out be the best plotter of my generation. Nightwatcher is dark, scary, and truly menacing. Wilson takes as his premise three inmates escaping a state hospital for the criminally insane." If you liked Halloween or Scream, you'll love Nightwatcher.

I'm giving Wilson another try. So far, this one started out well and got me hooked.

I think I'll be taking this with me to the library today to read while my daughter has reading time there. It is good, and I'm totally hooked into the plot and have an idea of whodunnit.

This was good... very good. It all made sense and the killer was interesting. I guess the first one I picked up by Wilson was just a dud, so I'll try some others. :)
