Publisher's Summary

The Girl on the Train meets Rear Window. The Watcher is an absolutely addictive and on trend commercial psychological suspense audiobook, with a captivating unreliable narrator and some powerful narrative twists.
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 bird-watcher, 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?

One of the best thrillers I've heard in a while

No doubt there are clear remnants of Girl on a Train and Rear Window in this psychological thriller, and having heard a fair few, sometimes it seems obvious who the culprit is.

However - the twists and turns to get to the climax are absolutely gut wrenching, the first personal dialogue writing in a journal is engaging and the contemporary plot is interesting - so it's well worth the listen. Catherine Steadman is a great performer - and it reminded me of listening to Paula Hawkin's character - there are clear similarities. Overall, definitely worth any hype.
