Overview

Janet Stapleton – widowed, confined to a wheelchair, living in a remote Connecticut farmhouse - didn’t believe in out-of-body experiences until she had one and witnessed a brutal murder. The second and third ones were no less horrific. Her investigation into why she was chosen to see these murders, soon has the demonic killer pursuing her.

Janet lives in a tranquil little town in Connecticut, and her involvement in the killings quickly leads to the police -- in the person of Lieutenant Eric Siuda -- to investigate her role in the slayings. Her claim to seeing these crimes in the occult manner she has brings her under suspicion. Complicating the Lieutenant's investigation is the fact that he falls in love with his prime suspect, and doesn't know whether to fear or protect her.

The horror was starting again....You know when a book starts with that sentence you are in for a spine-tingling thrill ride! "The Watcher" did not disappoint, it was that plus much more! From the first page to the last page, you are treated to alot of pulse pounding chills and thrills with a little romance thrown into the mix. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop. If you enjoy murder mysteries,serial killers, paranormal, and story-lines where the anticipation keeps building with each turn of the page, then you will love "The Watcher"!

This is the second ebook I've read written by John Brinling and, I must say, I am not disappointed. This is a murder-mystery/whodunit/paranormal experiences all wrapped up in one. Once I began this book, I was quickly intrigued and did not want to stop. I will say that the reader pretty much knew who was committing the murders early on into the story, but that did not take away from the story! All it did, for me, was to make one wonder how everything was going to work out so the evil person/people would be found out. Would good triumph over evil? Would Janet have a happy ending? These questions and more kept me aptly reading until the end. If you enjoy a murder mystery with a slightly different twist to it, then trust me when I say that you will enjoy reading The Watcher.

Janet Stapleton didn't believe in out-of-body experiences until she had one and witnessed a brutal murder. The second and third ones were no less horrific. Her investigation into why she was chosen to see these murders and the hooded figure doing the killings soon has the demonic killer pursuing her and her friends. Janet lives in a tranquil little town in Connecticut, and her involvement in the killings quickly leads to the police in the person of Eric Siuda to investigate her role in the slayings. Her claim to seeing these crimes in the manner she does brings her under suspicion, even though she is confined to a wheelchair. The killer - an amalgam of three individuals, a dying father and his two sons - is unique in the annals of crime, and his inhuman power defies the best forensic techniques. A brief excerpt follows: The horror was starting again.... Just like last Tuesday and the Tuesday before that. An unnatural quiet outside the hundred year old Connecticut farmhouse. A sullen, all too familiar, resonance of previous encounters. Janet Stapleton gripped the arms of her wheelchair tightly, her belly detecting its coming before her other senses, a low-grade fear more akin to disquiet than outright terror. A shimmer of tears came to her bright hazel-blue eyes. She only came when he killed. She arrived without warning and hovered over the death scene like some avenging angel, yet never ventured in close enough for him to see her clearly, get a feel for who she was or what she was doing there. She posed a serious threat and had to be disposed of. His work needed to be done in secret and no meddling voyeur could be allowed to interfere. But how could he find her? She only arrived during the last few seconds of the sacrificial act, and didn't linger long. Thought, tonight, for a brief moment, she'd actually thought to follow him home. Then, abruptly, pulled back, afraid, knowing it meant certain death. He grinned. Not to worry. It was only a matter of time until he identified her, until she felt the cold steel of his switchblade, and joined the others in hell! Of that he was sure. There was no way he could fail. Not with his father's unnatural guidance. This book will give you chills and probably keep you up at night. Enjoy.
