Publisher's Summary

Carla Roberts lives alone in a high-rise in Hackney. The lift keeps stopping on her floor, but nobody gets out. Days later, she's found brutally murdered.

Samson Segal has taken to spying on his neighbours, particularly beautiful and successful Gillian Ward. And when Gillian's daughter finds herself locked out the house, Samson takes her in. But her lack of appreciation makes him angry, and he vents to his diary, unaware that his sister-in-law cracked his password long ago....

When Gillian's husband is murdered, Samson finds himself under intense scrutiny. And the only man making any progress on the case shouldn't be working on it. Yet he's the only one who believes Samson is innocent....

    Story
    "Part 1 better than Part 2"
    Any additional comments?

    The book started out well with plenty of promise and the introduction of some interesting characters. Then like all other "women in danger" novels, it slipped into a predictable storytelling mode. A beautiful intelligent housewife, unable to communicate with her daughter, a lovely home, a stable comfortable marriage and life, the good looking man, an ever present best friend, and of course a stalker. This could have been really good, with some excellent insight into battered women, loneliness and depression. Perhaps not recommend for long car journeys, you may fall asleep at the wheel.

    Story
    "Repetitive with unnecessary detail."
    What did you like best about The Watcher? What did you like least?

    Interesting story. Obvious attempt to add a deeper psychological level to each character's motivation, but this comes across as padding without creating any real depth.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The writing style is the real problem, not the story itself. The book is overwritten, with each action analyzed to the point where the magic is lost. The reader is "nannied" along to the point where each character's thought process becomes an annoyance.


    What three words best describe Lucy Scott’s performance?

    "Aga saga" performance


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Struggled to get through this. It seemed as though the writer was attempting to create depth without just hinting at it (and allowing the reader some creative interpretation). Boring.

    "A great listen"

    This is the second of Charlotte Link's novels I have downloaded and it lived up to my expectations. With an underlying romantic storyline, this thriller became increasingly enthralling, the joy was that I could listen as I completed my daily tasks, making them enjoyable!

    Story
    "Enjoyed it all"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Watcher to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I fine it hard to concentrate reading print versions of books. I found I was addicted to this book & wanted to know what happened next. With a paper version I wouldn't have got through this book as fast as I did. I'm currently listening to it for the second time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the twists. They kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next.


    Which character – as performed by Lucy Scott – was your favourite?

    Not sure I have a favourite as I liked them all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely. If I had the time I could have listened in one sitting.

    If this book were a film would you go see it?
