Excellent! When I saw that Dennis LeHane blurbed this book as engrossing and suspenseful, I knew it would be good. Watson does an amazing job with slowly building the suspense in this novel. It's very Hitchockian in tone. And I love that, just like with LeHane's books, I had no idea where the story was headed.
Again, I was hooked from the beginning. I usually don't read for hours on end on the weekends, but I did on Saturday when I finished this one. I just couldn't make myself put it down. It was so engrossing that I didn't even realize I had spent hours reading it until the room got dark. I prefer psychological thrillers to action-based thrillers, and this one really delivered on that level. It's not necessarily fast-paced, but it's compulsively readable.
I highly recommend giving this one a try, even if you aren't typically a fan of thrillers. It's a smart book with lots of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. It's suspenseful, but not something that I think would turn off readers who don't like horror - not gory and not something that'll keep you up at night - but an amazing rainy day read.
