About the Book: 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 and 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 neighbor, 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

Review: Nightwatcher (Nightwatcher #1) by Wendy Corsi Staub
Read for Fun!
Overall Rating: 3.75
Story Rating: 3.50
Character Rating: 4.00

First thought when finished: Nightwatcher is the first Wendy Corsi Staub book that I have read and it was a great mix of characters/story.

What I thought of the story: Nightwatcher used one of the thriller tricks that isn’t my favorite (I won’t say because it will give something away) so that is why I rated the story lower. The writing was powerful and compelling. Most of the book I was trying to figure out the ins/outs and it was fun!

What I thought of the characters: Nightwatcher excelled in characters. They were so well written and done that I really started counting down to the next installment already.

Final thought: Wendy Corsi Staub is an excellent writer that brings a bit brilliant character writing to the thriller genre.

    I definitely want to know about the trick you are referring to.

  3. Oh now I’m curious as to the trick you are talking about. I do like a good thriller and this sounds good.

  4. I read one of her YA books and enjoyed it. I think this book would be difficult for me to read since it uses 9/11 as a kind of setting, but I still think I would like to read this, if only to find out what “Thriller trick” you are talking about!

  5. Great review, I’ve never read anything by this author and I am glad you liked it.
