I Am Watching
by Emma Kavanagh




Overview -
"Kavanagh keeps the suspense high to the chilling conclusion."
--Publishers Weekly

From a distance, they seem to be sleeping. Three bodies, sitting propped up against the ancient stones of Hadrian's Wall. Until a closer look reveals the horror of their too-white faces.

The victims were found by schoolgirl Isla Bell, out on an early morning run along the historic site. That day changed the small town of Briganton forever, and shaped Isla's life. Twenty years later, she's a professor of criminal psychology, wrestling with the question that still haunts her: why? Why did Heath McGowan kill those people--and two more besides--before he was finally caught by Isla's police detective father?

At last, Isla has a chance to get answers when Heath agrees to take part in her research. Isla's husband, Ramsey--the only one of Heath's victims to survive--cautions her against the meeting. But no matter how ready Isla feels to peer within a killer's mind, there is no way to prepare for the fresh horror about to engulf Briganton. Another body is found, displayed just as before . . . and then another. Is this a copycat, or could the truth be darker still?

"The red herring-filled conclusion should surprise even the most careful reader."
--Kirkus Reviews


"Smart, fierce, and absorbing, this is a novel that begs to be read deep into the night."

--Foreword Reviews
