Synopsis

Someone is always watching...







Derek Flint is a loner. He lives with his mother and spends his

evenings watching his clients on the CCTV cameras he has installed inside their homes. He likes their companionship - even if it's through a screen.





When a series of crimes hits Derek's neighbourhood, DC Beth Mayes begins to suspect he's involved. How does he know so much about the victims' lives? Why won't he let anyone into his office? And what is his mother hiding in that strange, lonely house?





As the crimes become more violent, Beth must race against the clock to find out who is behind the attacks. Will she uncover the truth in time? And is Derek more dangerous than even she has guessed?





A spellbinding crime novel from the worldwide bestseller

Cathy Glass, writing as Lisa Stone.

Customer Reviews

I was supposed to be busy – too busy to read this book, but it would not let me go. Just another page, another chapter … oops, book read and no work done. The story was enthralling – literally enthralling! It has been quite a while since I was this obsessed with getting to the end of a book. I can’t put my finger on it – the story-line is good: serial (seemingly unconnected) crime events in a small town; realistic police procedures leading to initial incorrect assumptions of guilt; more focussed police work – nothing so far really out of the ordinary. But then comes the central character, Derek Flint. One of life’s great losers and forgotten men. He fits the profile of many a serial killer / psychopath – no friends, lives with his embittered mother, sits in front of a computer all night … in short, not someone you would ever feel sympathy for – or even remember if you met him. In your first introduction to him, you have him pegged as the evil perpetrator – and just wonder how long the police will take to bring him to justice. Derek runs a moderately successful Home Security company – by himself, with an occasional poorly paid apprentice – and knows the potential flaws of his clients’ security issues inside out. Who better to plan robberies and arrange abductions? It is all so obvious, that you know (as a seasoned reader of crime novels) you must have the wrong end of the stick. Derek is conscientious, polite, always punctual (clearly a sociopath!) – but actually, genuinely cares about the welfare of his clients, and does everything he possibly can to keep them safe. And that is where he starts to get a bit creepy. He sees his clients as part of his family, and spends every evening with them all, watching their every move, listening to them talk … via the security cameras and microphones that he has installed in their homes and businesses. Deep down, he knows what he is doing is wrong, but he justifies it as giving each client that added extra protection that only 24-hour surveillance can bring. And in this current crime wave, that is definitely what they need. However, Derek’s warning emails and texts don’t just stick to crimes against property, he also flexes his moral compass – with some quite unforeseen consequences. I really liked the character of Derek, and so much wanted him to come clean to the police, and to his clients – before it was too late. He appears more and more to be one of the (really) good guys, but there is always a sneaking suspicion, that the stress he is put under will drive him to the dark side. Some of the twists you can see coming – but that in no way detracts from the enjoyment of the book. Other twists are clean out of the blue. It is very difficult to review this book in a way that will bring it all the readers that it so deserves. But you just need to start it – and the book will take over from then. I can recommend this book very, very highly. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
