A mysterious stranger arrives in Dundee, Scotland, with a mission to find a new Chosen One to punish. His inner voices guide him to Nicole, a ruthless business woman with a weakness for the husbands of other women.
One of Nicole’s paramours is found hanged and everyone assumes he has committed suicide. However, his estranged wife, Julie, knows better and blames his death on Nicole. Obsessed with the need to punish Nicole, Julie stalks her, unaware that there is another stalker, the deranged and dangerous Night Watcher.
Who will exact punishment on Nicole first?
What price will Nicole have to pay for her misdemeanors?
Will Julie’s mind games drive Nicole over the edge?
And what price will Julie have to pay for her obsession?
Only the Night Watcher knows!
The creepy Night Watcher sent shivers down my spine! I loved the way we got inside his mind, got to see what he was thinking, how he saw the outside world and why he was doing what he was. He certainly was a creepy character although, I have to admit, he was quite fascinating. I even felt a bit sorry for him at one point.
There was insight into the lives of the people involved in the the story, making the characters real, giving them a rounded feel rather than just standing alone in the main plot line.
It was great the way the watcher was watching another watcher – the way the plot wove together. I wasn’t entirely sure who was responsible for the going-ons. Was it the Night Watcher or was it Julie? Maybe the husband or a colleague? Lots of tension and suspense from the first to the last page.
I don’t like the dark or basements at the best of times, I like them even less now!
