Someone is always watching…
Derek Flint is a loner. He lives with his mother and spends his evenings watching his clients on the CCTV cameras he has installed inside their homes. He likes their companionship – even if it’s through a screen.
When a series of crimes hits Derek’s neighbourhood, DC Beth Mayes begins to suspect he’s involved. How does he know so much about the victims’ lives? Why won’t he let anyone into his office? And what is his mother hiding in that strange, lonely house?
As the crimes become more violent, Beth must race against the clock to find out who is behind the attacks. Will she uncover the truth in time? And is Derek more dangerous than even she has guessed?
A spellbinding crime novel from the worldwide bestseller Cathy Glass, writing as Lisa Stone.
My Review: 4/5
This is the story of voyerism at it’s worse. Derek Flint installs CCTV cameras in peoples homes. After installed, he watches them and becomes immersed in their lives. However, the story takes a dark turn and Derek finds himself at risk.
This book is a fast read that is addicting. On one hand I had sympathy for Derek, yet on the other I found him to be incredibly creepy. The storyline itself was terrifying and the author did a great job drawing the reader in. I especially enjoyed getting to know Derek and the complexity of his personality.
One part that slightly lacked for my were the police officers on the case. I never connected with Beth or Matt. While they were necessary to the story, I found them somewhat boring.
Overall this is a great book. I highly recommend!
