When a killer chooses you, what choice do you have?

Thirty years ago, Elise and Nathaniel shared a horrific trauma that united them in grief. Now, grown up and married with a young family, they feel their worst nightmares are behind them. Until the day their daughter is abducted and murdered.

Both Elise and Nathaniel lost their mothers to a notorious killer who manipulated innocent victims into taking their own lives. Could it be that ‘the Watcher’ has returned for another round of the same sadistic game? Why now? And why are Elise and Nathaniel being targeted again?

When Elise’s family falls under suspicion, her world crashes down around her. Is there anyone she can trust, or is her whole life built on lies?

Only one thing is clear: someone left their cruel game unfinished all those years ago. This time the Watcher intends to win – once and for all.

Nathaniel and Elise Munroe are a married couple with kids. Their teen daughter goes missing and is found murdered. This leads into an investigation that looks at their family and friends.

Nathaniel and Elise met at a suicide support group. They shared something in common… both of their mothers were killed by the “Suicide Watcher,” a serial killer that manipulates victims into killing themselves. The “Watcher” plays a part in the current events unfolding in the Munroes lives.

This book has a lot happening. There are a lot of characters and various storylines. Also, multiple timelines and points of view are used. For me, too much was happening and it didn’t flow well. The parts concerning the “Watcher” were intriguing, but otherwise it was a fairly chaotic read. On the plus side, there is so much happening, it’s hard to guess who the killer is.
