Summary

He's the last person you want on your case. And the only one who can solve it.

Tom Mondrian's perfectly happy as a PCSO directing traffic until a bullet to the brain changes everything. With a new, unusual perspective, including an inability to recognise faces and absolutely no filter between his brain and his mouth, Tom's convinced his career should be over.

Until his new condition also helps him start noticing details that other police officers are missing and gives him a determination to save three missing girls before more start to disappear.

Critic reviews

"An eerily atmospheric reworking of Hitchcock's Rear Window." ( The Guardian on The Watcher)
"Addictive and eerie, you'll finish the book wanting to chat about it." ( Closer Magazine)
"A twisted homage to Hitchcock set in a recognisably post-Brexit broken Britain. Tense, fast-moving and with an increasingly unreliable narrator, The Watcher has all the hallmarks of a winner." (Martyn Waites)

A satellite of hope

Tom's brain injury allows him to access his best instincts and notice the small details that help the case and story unfold. I was a neuroscience student at one stage and love how the science used doesn't condescend or patronise. Entertaining and gripping! this book is amazing!
