Joanne’s Mystery Picks

51pevt0wznlI AM WATCHING YOU by Teresa Driscoll

While on her way to attend a conference, Ella Longfield overhears two young men, recently released from prison, chatting-up two girls on the train.  Should she alert someone?  Try to contact their parents?  Does she have an obligation to do something?  These questions will stay with her for a very long time as the next day the news is full of the story of one of the girls having gone missing.

As the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Anna Ballard approaches, Ella is still wracked with guilt and is now getting ugly and threatening letters.  And then those secrets that everyone tries to hide start to be revealed, as the police concentrate on Anna’s family.

As a thriller, this was a good page-turner.  However, I could have done without the occasional commentary by the creepy “watcher”.  The story could have unfolded on its own without these episodes and would have been a better novel for it.
