“If you like Mary Higgins Clark, you’ll love Wendy Corsi Staub.”
—Lisa Jackson, bestselling author of Devious

One of the most exciting of the new breed of thriller and suspense writers, Wendy Corsi Staub asks, “Are you ever truly safe...even in your own home?” With Nightwatcher, the acclaimed, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Hell to Pay delivers a ripped-from-the-headlines masterwork of suspense, the first book in an electrifying new series. Intense, powerful, and refreshingly original, Nightwatcher returns to the site of America’s worst national nightmare—New York City on September 11, 2001—as a serial killer, plying his bloody trade in  the chaos following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, operates unnoticed by everyone…except for one frightened woman who has seen his face. Author Lee Child has called her work, “solid gold suspense,” and any reader who’s ever stayed up late, devouring the novels of Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner with every light on in the house, should prepare to lose even more sleep over Wendy Corsi Staub’s Nightwatcher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrills & Chills Galore! Story Description: HarperCollins|August 28, 2012|Mass Market|ISBN: 978-0-06-207028-9 As the city sleeps in the early hours of September 10, 2001, the killer waits and watches, unaware of the cataclysm to come. Even the nightmare of 9/11 will not postpone his private reign of terror. Allison Taylor adores her adopted city, New York, loving every minute of the invigorating urban hustle. But on a bright clear September morning, the familiar landscape around her is savagely altered-and in the midst of widespread chaos and fear, a woman living upstairs from her is found, brutally slaughtered and mutilated. For Allison…for her neighbour, James “Mack” MacKenna desperately searching for news of his missing wife…for homicide detective Rocky Manzillo, hunting for a monster called “The Nightwatcher” amid the smoking ruins of a devastated city, this tragic day will hold a special horror. Because a different kind of terror has entered their lives…and it’s coming to claim Allison Taylor as its next victim. My Review: I felt so bad for Allison Taylor. She was such an innocent victim in this story but these horrible things kept happening and she knew that someone was after her and what a terrible feeling it caused. The day she came home and realized someone had been in her apartment would have done it for me. I was gripping this book so hard that my hands were turning white! My heart was pounding, I was swallowing and turning the pages as fast as I possibly could. Nightwatcher is a fast-paced suspense thriller like no other. Your heart will just pound and pound as you read and you’ll want to force your brain to read the words faster and faster and faster. It was so good that I read it within a few hours as I just couldn’t go to bed or do anything until I was done. This is one book you simply can’t miss!!
