That’s when you meet the man next door.
He’s the head teacher at the local school. Twice your age. Extraordinarily attractive. You find yourself watching him.
All the time.
But you never dreamed that your innocent crush might become a deadly obsession.
“Then She Was Gone was my favourite thriller last year and this is even better. Brilliantly plotted and impossible to put down, it kept me guessing until the very end.”
Alice Feeney, author of Sometimes I Lie
“A finely drawn domestic thriller”
India Knight, Sunday Times
“Page one intrigued me. Page three hooked me. By page five, I was consumed. This compulsive, propulsive novel is both a seize-you-by-the-throat thriller and a genuinely moving family drama. Stellar.”
A J Finn
“I’ve always been jealous of her. I’ve always envied her ability to write a sentence. She’s written a couple of psychological thrillers and her plotting is really great but her characterisation is great as well.”
“The very definition of a terrific beach read.”
“She keeps the reader in the palm of her hand with one surprise after another.”
“Jewell writes wonderfully engaging characters who weave plausibly tangled webs and the whodunit was largely incidental until the closing pages. She masterfully draws all her threads together throwing in some cunning twists for good measure…The countdown is on for the next Lisa Jewell novel.”
“She's done it again! Lisa Jewell has penned the page-turner of the summer. Emotionally-engrossing and utterly compelling, with a mystery that keeps you gripped until the last heart-wrenching page.”
“If you only pick one summer read this year, make it Watching You. I inhaled it in one sitting. A gripping plot, characters you love but can't trust, and a thumping emotional heart, Lisa Jewell has done it again.”
Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes and 13 Minutes
“Watching You by the scarily talented Lisa Jewell is set to be one of THE reads of the summer. Expertly crafted with a cast of fabulous and intricately drawn characters, this story will keep you glued to your sun-bed and have you guessing until the final heartrending sentence. Superb.”
Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake
“a fresh take on a familiar theme with some juicy twists thrown in.”
“This intense domestic thriller marks a new high for one of our fave authors.”
“With deadly infatuation, voyeurism and obsession leading to murder, it’s darkly addictive stuff.”
“Proving she deserves her place at the top of the psychological thriller-writers pack.”
“Lisa Jewell always delivers suspense, and Watching You is no exception.”
“After a very creepy start Jewell keeps you guessing until its equally creepy ending.”
“Constantly plays with readers' perceptions”
“A free-flowing beauty of a mystery thriller”
“This book is a huge wow for me. This is my first time reading a book by Lisa Jewell and what a book this is! I was so mesmerised right from the start. It’s such a page-turner but I will admit that I did take my time to read this because I didn’t want it to end.”
