April 3, 2015

Here is another review of Someone is Watching  that appeared in both the Sullivan Country Demomcrat  and the Ellenville Shawangunk Journal, two New York Newspapers:

“The first of this excellent entertainer's thrillers I've read in a while, and what a pleasure to be reminded how good she is. It starts with a close-up point-of-view character (our narrator, in fact) you don't like much. Then, just as you're getting really fed up with this woman it raises such hell with her that you can't help beginning to feel for her. And then her struggles grow her in such a way that you root for her gladly as the suspense winds tighter and tighter. Really shrewdly done, tense and gripping.”
Sullivan County Democrat
