Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on - a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye - and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year.
Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday. It was supposed to be a celebration of her life. But it's not the story anyone was expecting...

"Amazing performance and story."
All of it.
The unpredictable twists to the story.
I am now a fan. I love his voice. He brought all the characters to life.
Yes there was, but I do not want to spoil the story for others.
This was my first Michael Robotham book and it won't be my last. If you haven't listened to this, you are missing a very good story.
Very well written and interesting story. Nothing to fault it on. Keeps you guessing what will come next.
"Interesting unusual story with good twists"
Well narrated, gripping story with good twists. Really enjoyed it. Kept me wanting to listen.
"A well read exciting and complex thriller"
This is one of those books that draws you in and captivates. Beautifully read with great attention given to characterisation. Full of turns and tension with an exciting conclusion. An excallent recording.
"Twists, turns and twists again"
Wonderfully narrated story that leaves the listener/reader enthralled to the very end. Many books of this genre are predictable but this one was a complete surprise. I loved it.
Not listened to this author before but found myself deeply wrapped up in the story and will listen or read others
The narrator was perfect

"A Great Psychological Thriller badly read"
A different reader
The discovery of the Watching
No idea but someone who can "do" children's voices
It is a good story. The pace is excellent and well researched
Re recorded with a better reader would be good
"Got better as it went on"
I found the beginning confusing and I didn't warm to the main character very easily. Luckily i kept going and by an a couple of hours in I was intrigued enough to continue.
The plot was quite interesting and although there were red herrings galore it was fun to work out which parts were going to be relevant and that kept my interest.
The psychologist was a well developed character and i like the retired detective's interaction with people.
The main female character just never really set me alight, but with kids and a missing husband i could be empathetic. i just didn't like her very much and some of the stuff she did wasn't convincing. Plus there were a few moments in the plot when you really had to suspend your disbelief to get through it.
Overall i have given it a generous 4 stars because the plot won me over with all the strings of narrative fitting together at the end. Just don't take it too seriously :-)
