What if every person on earth received a 48-hour notice that they would die? That is the premis of Death Watch. The twists and turns of this story kept me turning the pages long after I should have been in bed. Well written, wholely believable, and thought provoking, this Christy Award winner is definitely a keeper.

This was a page-turning, suspenseful novel of people receiving death watch notices 48 hours before they die. Everyone who receives this notice dies at exactly the time the notice says they will. An LA news reporter races to uncover who or what is behind these deaths while those close to her also receive notices. Can she find the answer in time to save her friends?

The writing was good and kept me reading. The ending was a bit 'eh' for me but believable. It almost seemed to be a bit of a let-down.
