The lives of Ward and Natasha McCarty have been wrecked by the tragic electrocution death of their young son, Barney. Their personal and professional lives are falling apart. Then, an unhappy teenaged girl, seated next to Ward on an airplane, steals a family heirloom. Meanwhile, someone (the Watcher) is scripting a death for them for reasons unknown.

This author keeps the reader engaged during the whole novel. A couple is grieving the loss of their child of nearly a year ago. What they don't know is someone is watching them and their days are numbered. Is the Watcher someone hired by the grieving husband's competitor or is it some lone nut? Why has the Watcher focused on this couple and why is he out for their blood? You'll have to read the book to find out. You're in not only for one twist but two but you'll never see it coming!

Was not disappointed in this book at all. It took me a bit to really get into it~ only because of everyday life~ however the read was good and I would read this author again!

Gory, sadistic, scary stuff. I could not focus on anything else that needed to be done--just stuck to the couch needing to know what happened next. Big surprises!!!

Rollicking thriller based in North Carolina with a few wicked twists at the end. Entertaining.
