First class thriller
This is one of those books that I couldn't stop listening to as the narrative powers one with twists and turns, red herrings and surprises. There aren't too many characters so the main ones are vivid and memorable. I didn't guess the final truth that is only revealed as the book races to the final denouement.
The narrator is excellent and the writing is crisp and to the point without too many superfluous details nor digressions into the author's musical tastes voiced through one of the characters: a fault of some other crime/thriller writers!

Another gripping listen from Michael Robotham that had me listening compulsively over a couple of days. The plot moves along at a good pace with some fantastic twists and turns. Sean Barrett's narration is as mesmerising as ever, his dark menacing tone suits this novel perfectly.

Michael Robotham is an amazing author - I love his character therapist Joe O’Loughlin
In this novel Joe has a client names Marnie. Marnie has experienced several devastating personal trajedies and is seeing Joe because of the current tragedy - her husband has been missing for over a year - and she does not have the money to continue supporting herself and her 2 children
Then Marnie discovers a journal/picture book that her husband had been making for her as a surprise before he disappeared - and that is when things get worse.
Is someone watching Marnie, or is she suffering from a dissociative disorder?
You will have to read the book to find out
Sean Barrett as always was amazing with the delivery of the story

Brilliant series, by brilliant author.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It's not very often that an author this good comes along. Michael Robotham is an excellent writer, crafting his writing elegantly and without unnecessary flourish. He dialogue is clever and shines when a good narrator such as Sean Barrett performs it. The only other narrator to better Barrett performing Robotham was Crispin Redman performing The Suspect. His voices were just wonderful - especially for the policeman Ruiz. Books of this quality are hard to put down; you want them to go on forever. The plot was intelligent and original, and the ending extremely satisfying and it left me with a smile. If you're reading this, you must love a good mystery/thriller but don't like wasting your time or a credit on a mediocre book.
I can assure you this book is definitely not mediocre. It will tick all your boxes and more. Please buy it and enjoy!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Watching You?
For me, the entire book shines, without any particular moment being the most memorable. Having said that, the appearance of Malcolm was very memorable, as was each appearance in the book of Owen. I won't say why, as the reader will discover for themselves, on listening to this wonderful book.
What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?
I like the way Sean Barrett, for me, speaks with virtually no accent. OK, it's mildly British, but understated. He performs the book well changing from narrative stretches into the various dialogues in a masterful way and always engaging the listener by injecting interest, activity and mood into his performance.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, I felt like laughing and crying but most of all I felt that tingle of expectation and suspense that prevented me from turning the book off to go to sleep. There were many occasions where I empathised with the various characters and they all played believable parts in the story. Finally, the book made me sorry, sorry that it was over......
Any additional comments?
Please Michael Robotham, write another excellent novel in this series soon, and meanwhile keep safe and well.
