Publisher's Summary

A gripping serial killer thriller.

An entire family is murdered and, by a quirk, a young girl is left unharmed. For 15 years, she believed the killer had been caught, and he's now on death row, awaiting execution. While trying to be content with her adoptive family, she's living in relentless uncertainty and the fear of remembering what really happened that night when she was five years old. She's The Watson Girl.

A therapist has asked her to participate in regression session treatments to attempt to bring back those lost memories. The closer she gets to the truth, however, the less time she has to remain alive. Now, the real killer is going to silence her, before she can remember the details of that horrifying night, when she was an innocent witness.

Laura Watson is young, she's beautiful, and she's a serial killer's loose end.

Join the smart, relentless, and short-fused FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett and her team in a heart-stopping search for the serial killer who has managed to stay hidden for many years. Explore the inner workings of the murderer's mind, and find out what motivates such predatory, blood-lusting behavior, while following every twist and turn of an existence spent taking lives.

The Watson Girl

Awesome! I can't say enough good things about this book...I loved it...it was captivating. At 5 years old Laura Watson, hiding in a clothes hamper, witnesses her family being brutally murdered. She is sent to live with her father's partner and remembers nothing about the murders. Skip ahead 15 years and Laura is asked to participate in something called regression therapy which will hopefully help her remember the killings. Although the cops believe they have the correct person in jail for the killings it become clear that they do not. We are let into the killers head as he talks to you about what he plans to do & how he plans his killings out. This was a spectacularly creepy book & I would highly recommend it as a read.

Superb Thriller

Any additional comments?

"The Watson Girl" is my favorite kind of thriller - a tight, intricate story, featuring strong female leads, tons of twists and turns and a very satisfying ending. Leslie Wolfe expertly weaves a tale about a murdered family, the lose end that survived and the killer that's behind it all. Typically I can guess where a book like this is going, but Wolfe left me wondering (and wrong!) on more than one occasion. Andrew Tell delivers a fabulous performance keeping me enthralled and bringing the characters to life. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a murder mystery story - this is quite a good one! 10/10

Excellent storyline & excellent narrator

"The Watson Girl" is a fast-paced story with a talented narrator. It is thrilling and suspenseful. And I'm really excited to say that this story is part of Tess Winnett series. I can't wait to read/listen to the other books.

The author did give me a free "Listen & Review" code to purchase this book. My review is my opinion without regard to the book being free. This book is definitely worth buying.

Fast-paced mystery/suspense definitely delivers!

What made the experience of listening to The Watson Girl the most enjoyable?

There wasn't one particular thing that made listening to The Watson Girl more or less enjoyable.The whole audiobook as a whole was solid. The narration was very well done and the story kept me interested and guessing the whole time. The characters were fully realized and the plot of the book was well thought out and didn't lag. If you're looking for a good, solid mystery/suspense audiobook, I'd definitely take a look at this one!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how the author separated the story out between the original victim that survived, Laura Watson, Special Agent Tess Winnett, who reopens the case to see if the wrong killer may have been blamed for the Watson crime, and the killer himself. It's written well and the various POVs between these characters doesn't confuse and comes together nicely.

Have you listened to any of Andrew Tell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to Andrew Tell's narration previously, but I would definitely listen to another performance of his. He was easy to understand with a good cadence and the various characters that he portrayed were easy to differentiate and well read.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't think that there was a particular moment in the book that really moved me, but it did keep my attention throughout and I wanted to know what happened next and who did it!

The Watson Girl is a real winner!

In ' The Watson Girl', FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett is sent to conduct a final interview with a convicted, soon to be executed, serial killer. During the course of the interview he reveals to her that he did not commit three of the murders of which he had been convicted. Tess becomes convinced of the existence of another serial killer who has managed to remain hidden for 15 years, likely longer. This leads to a race to find this killer before he comes back for the lone known survivor who is now unknowingly threatening his identity.

This book was my introduction to Leslie Wolfe. I became engrossed in the story as it unfolded bit by bit until the startling conclusion. The story moves from the reopening the investigation into the cases- to events currently happening in the survivor's life- to the story of the unknown serial killer's development. Ms. Wolfe weaves these three parts into one sensational book.

It was also the first time I've heard Andrew Tell narrate. Andrew does a great job in narrating the story. His voices are different enough that it is easy to tell the difference when he changes characters. He has a pleasing voice that is easy to listen too. He manages to express the various emotions in the story without being overly dramatic. It comes across feeling quite natural.

I'm afraid I'm not doing this book justice. As opportunities to listen to this book were so sporadic, my impressions aren't as fresh to convey. Leslie Wolfe is now on my favorite thriller's author list . Having missed her earlier books, I will be reading and/or listening to them while waiting for her next one. I'll also be glad to have Andrew Tell narrate.

I was gifted with this audible book by the author which in no way influenced my opinions in this voluntarily given review.

Read and enjoy this book. I don't think you'll regret it.

Very good!

Listening to Audio books makes my daily commute to work less painful and prevents me from falling asleep behind the wheel.
I have listened to many thrillers and The Watson girl as well as Dawn Girl are definitely among the best!

The narrator is extremely good, well written, great story.... Oh my God, I could not stop listening.

Must read Thriller!!

"An exhilarating ride with plenty to satisfy even the most demanding Crime Reader - Very Haunting , Tess Winnett is amazing.. I found myself rushing through the last few chapters as the pace increased and every moment was full of tension. Brilliant stuff." 

the narrative of Andrew Tell is an added bonus bringing the acts of the crime and criminals into question with bone chilling intensity.. Bravo.!!

Twists and turns!

Would you listen to The Watson Girl again? Why?

Yes, you understand the clues better to unlock the mysteries.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the story kept you spellbound throughout.

What does Andrew Tell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice, cadence and knowledge of the characters brought them to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Is it better to remember or forget?

Gripping Story!

Leslie Wolfe is a new author to me, while I have listened to Andrew Tell previously. I think both are extremely talented. I loved all of the unexpected twists this book had. I found the story to be original, and felt that the audiobook would be better than the print version due to the performance. I will definitely look for more books by both Leslie Wolfe and Andrew Tell. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

To predictable

I enjoy reading "who done it" books. However of recent times I find the blatant agression of leading female characters all to predictable - The Watson Girl is exactly that. Get it from a library don't buy it.
