'An eerily atmospheric reworking of Hitchcock's Rear Window' - The Guardian

She's watching you, but who's watching her?

Lily Gullick lives with her husband Aiden in a new-build flat opposite an estate which has been marked for demolition. A keen birdwatcher, she can't help spying on her neighbours.

Until one day Lily sees something suspicious through her binoculars and soon her elderly neighbour Jean is found dead. Lily, intrigued by the social divide in her local area as it becomes increasingly gentrified, knows that she has to act. But her interference is not going unnoticed, and as she starts to get close to the truth, her own life comes under threat.

But can Lily really trust everything she sees?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Addictive and eerie, you'll finish the book wanting to chat about it' - Closer Magazine, Must Read

'A twisted homage to Hitchcock set in a recognisably post-Brexit broken Britain. Tense, fast-moving and with an increasingly unreliable narrator, The Watcher has all the hallmarks of a winner.' - Martyn Waites

'Ross Armstrong will feed your appetite for suspense' - Evening Standard

'Unreliable narrator + Rear Window-esque plot = sure-fire hit' - The Sun

'Brilliantly written...this psychological thriller is definitely one that will keep you up to the early hours. Five Stars.' - Heat, Book of the Week

'A dark, unsettling page turner' - Claire Douglas, author of Local Girl Missing.

'Creepy and compelling' - Debbie Howells author of The Bones of You

'The Watcher is an intense, unsettling read... one that had me feeling like I needed to keep checking over my shoulder as I read.; - Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me

“Watch Out”

The Watcher - Ross Armstrong

“Trust The Early Confusion & Read On”

Having finished the book, I can see why there is such a disparity of reviewers liking and disliking this one. At just under a quarter of the way in I could so easily have decided it was a two star read and given up.... More

“Absolute rubbish!”

This novel is one of the most tedious novels I have read in years.

After reaching page 30 I was hoping I was going to start getting some for want of a better word action.

Decided to flick ahead through the titles of... More
