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

the book by making the characters perform uninteresting little chores, which was annoying as hell, and the ending was stupid... and annoying as hell. I seem to write

annoying reviews for books like this to try and show how I felt while reading them. I don't know how to make it much clearer because, like always, I don't mention much

of the plot in a review since the damn internet will give you 80% of it if you look for more than half a second, but I wouldn't bother much with this one. Neiderman has

it in him to write good books, but since I dislike most of the ones I have read, he seems to rarely hit the bullseye. Well, I haven't read a bullseye yet but I'm sure

that slim little novel is out there somewhere and I plan on finding it which is why I keep trying, and trying, and trying.
