Nightwatcher - Wendy Corsi Staub



Released September 2012

Wendy Corsi Staub
HarperCollins

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

September is Kiss and Teal month. The goal is to make women aware of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and to contact your doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Bloating
  • Difficulty eating/feeling full quickly
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Urinary issues (frequent or sudden urination)
In Nightwatcher, September 11th hits, but not without a shocking revelation. While many in NYC mourned, one madman was out murdering innocent women. His sights are set on Allison Taylor, whether she knows it or not.

Allison is busy supporting her neighbor, Mack MacKenna, a man whose wife was in one of the towers before it collapsed. Mack is beyond himself with grief and will take any help he can get from Allison to see if his wife is possibly still aliv

More than ten years have softened the impact of the horrific events of September 11th. I'm thankful for that, but even so, I still felt that shock reading of the towers' collapse and the panic that hit the city. Wendy Corsi Staub captures that part of it well.

The killer's identity isn't really a huge secret, it's made pretty apparent from the start, but then there are some twists even I didn't see coming. Now I'm eager to read the next book in this series, it's set 10 years later with Allison and Mack married and raising their children. Sleepwalker is next on my reading pile!
