The Watcher: A Novel (A Kateri Fisher Novel Book 1)
Kateri Fisher was transferred to a small town in upstate New York. She’s told to go check up on suspicious activity near the woods, finding a rundown house with blood splattered everywhere and a child in the closet no one knew existed. The mother is missing and presumed to be the victim. Kateri takes the little girl to the hospital, where she ends up being checked out by someone posing as her guardian, leaving a cop dead. The case gets stranger by the minute, with new suspects and questionable motives. The mother was clearly paranoid about something since she never left the house, no one knew her daughter existed and there were security cameras everywhere even though she could barely pay for utilities. She felt she was being watched by someone, but who was The Watcher? ||I honestly don’t really know what to make of this story. The plot on the jacket cover sounded interesting, but once I started reading, it wasn’t accurate at all. It felt like the story focused more on Shannon than anyone else, but didn’t go as deep as it could have. Sometimes it also felt like huge chunks were missing as if the reader is just supposed to fill in the blanks and know what the author is thinking. I didn’t really enjoy this story at all and I’m not even sure whom I would recommend it to.
