I really liked this book. I don't understand why people on this site that read it previously have no opinion. This book is essentially about Marty and his father Frank. Frank is an alcoholic and a violent one. One day, Frank brings home a woman and her teenage daughter Judy. He announces that he's marrying Elaine and they're moving in. Marty notices how Frank is constantly eyeing Judy, making comments on her figure.

Marty and Judy grow close, since both of their parents are pretty much alcoholics

This Neiderman novel is set in a hotel which seems to be abandoned at first, but, as the title indicates, someone's watching the couple who decide to stay there. I was

pleased to see that this is one of Neiderman's higher rated novels and not pleased to have to take those numbers down just a bit. I really didn't enjoy this book

either. The flashbacks were annoying as hell, the characters (all of them) were annoying as hell, the suspense factor of the book seemed to just be about drawing out
