Night Watcher by Chris Longmuir
Today sees the launch of the very talented Chris Longmuir's book Night Watcher released in paperback! Previously only available on Kindle. Congratulations Chris and happy launch day. Read my review and be tempted to buy the book. Its worth it. Chris Longmuir is also a member of FAMOUS FIVE PLUS . Click on the link to find out more about her.
Nicole is not liked. No surprise as she is not a nice person. In fact, it could be said that she is hated. Her work colleagues despise her, her husband treats her like she is worthless and she does not have one person she could call a true friend. That is, until she meets Julie. However, Julie is not all she seems and Nicole mistakenly places her trust in Julie when she fears she is being stalked. Julie it seems has her own agenda to make Nicole’s life a misery and is fuelled by revenge. Julie believes that Nicole is responsible for the death of her husband and will stop at nothing to ruin Nicole’s life. However, Julie herself soon gets caught up in events that spiral out of control, putting her in danger also.
Despite the fact the no-one really believes that Nicole is being stalked, she is in more danger than she or even the police realises. Someone is waiting and watching in the dark with a purpose and a ‘calling.’ He is hell-bent on completing his ‘mission’ and has Nicole firmly set in his targets. But, just who is he? Is it someone Nicole knows? It seems that all the characters, even those who seem innocent, have their own agendas. Who will stop at nothing to gain the advantage over Nicole in work, love and life itself!
Chris Longmuir creates a very atmospheric story in this book and provides us with some insight into the mind of the ‘Night Watcher’ which serves its purpose – to make the reader look over their shoulder every now and again just to make sure they are alone! I could not fault this book at all except to say that made me sit open mouthed at the end and I looked like an idiot! The book is superbly written and Chris Longmuir is extremely talented, drawing the reader deeply into the story and guessing right to the end. This is a psychological thriller with so many twists and turns it takes your breath away.
I so look forward to reading more by Chris Longmuir. If you want a book to take you on a roller coaster of a ride and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end then this is the book for you. All thriller lovers and amateur detectives will consume this book with gusto. I simply could not put it down. It’s not hard to see why Chris Longmuir is a prize winning author.
Thank you JB Johnston for including this review of Night Watcher on Brook Cottage Books, and I’m so glad you liked the book.
