Holson is a sleepy, middle-class suburb, whose most interesting news amounts to farmer’s markets and Friday night football games.
When young Brandon Grey disappears, no one thinks he’ll be missing for long. When another boy vanishes, parents begin to worry about their children. When bodies turn up in the local river, cut to pieces, stuffed inside industrial-strength black trash bags, the town begins to shut down.
The day that Brandon Grey is last seen walking home from school by teachers, two young boys are starting a street hockey game. A man stops at the end of their block, takes a picture of them, and drives off. All they catch is the model and color of the car he’s driving.
Jake and Colin, fueled by their ambition to form a detective club, decide to go searching for the car that haunts them. They soon take it upon themselves to find Brandon Grey. As tensions in town rise, and so does the body count, they find themselves deep in a mystery they never bargained for, closer to the serial killer than they could have ever imagined.

Brings back vivid childhood memories and fears of “bad guys “.
I don’t normally write reviews but I loved this book. The writing reminded me of Stephen King’s It. Great book!!!!
Neighborhood Watch harkens back to the days before cellphones where street lights were the measure for when you had to be home as curfew. I thought Mr. Turkot really captured this very well. I thought the characters were well written and developed. I remember these days very well. I was sucked into the mystery of it all and devoured the pages swiftly to find out what happened next. I was full of curiousity and adventure to explore this book. I'll definitely be checking out more of Mr. Turkot's work in the future.
