PENGUIN GROUP Viking, Pamela Dorman Books
“A nerve-shredding page-turner but also an ingenious guessing game and an absorbing account of a woman's struggle to make her voice heard.” —Minnesota StarTribune
A mother is forced to the breaking point when her life and the lives of her children are threatened by an intruder
Home alone with her young children during a blizzard, a mother tucks her son back into bed in the middle of the night. She hears a noise—old houses are always making some kind of noise. But this sound is disturbingly familiar: it’s the tread of footsteps, unusually heavy and slow, coming up the stairs.
She sees the figure of a man appear down the hallway, shrouded in the shadows. Terrified, she quietly wakes her children and hustles them into the oldest part of the house, a tiny, secret room concealed behind a wall. There they hide as the man searches for them, trying to tempt the children out with promises and scare the mother into surrender.
In the suffocating darkness, the mother struggles to remain calm, to plan. Should she search for a weapon or attempt escape? But then she catches another glimpse of him. That face. That voice. And at once she knows her situation is even more dire than she’d feared, because she knows exactly who he is—and what he wants.
“Nightmarish—you won’t be able to look away.”—Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door
“I loved Nightwatching. It is the most gripping thriller I have ever read.”—Gillian McAllister, New York Times bestselling author of Wrong Place Wrong Time
“I am trying to think of a book that has grabbed me by the throat more quickly. None comes to mind.”—Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author of The Lie Maker
“The most gripping psychological thriller I’ve ever read. Heart-thumping and mesmerizing, a masterclass in tension and terror, it’s also a creative, thoughtful portrait of maternal fear and love--a must read.”—Ashley Audrain, New York Times bestselling author of The Push
“Nightwatching is an intense and claustrophobic thriller--it’s terrifying and unputdownable.”—Karin Slaughter, New York Times and #1 international bestselling author of After That Night
“Few novels have affected me like this one. Nightwatching is acutely frightening and beautifully written, as tender as it is terrifying. I can't remember rooting for a character quite so hard!”—Abigail Dean, New York Times bestselling author of Girl A
“Tracy Sierra is an impressive new talent. Nightwatching is riveting, by turns a chilling account of a horrifying ordeal and a whip-smart snapshot of marriage, motherhood, and the female experience in a man’s world. Psychological terror at its finest.”—Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of The Manor House
“Breathtakingly superb on every level. A proper tour de force that delivers the highest possible grip factor from first word to last, and a more satisfying resolution than I dared to hope for.”—Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple at the Table
“Nightwatching is at once a terrifying descent into my deepest maternal fears, a blistering social critique, and an elegiac portrait of what it means—and what it takes—to endure. One of the most haunting, gripping novels I've read in a long time.”—Katie Gutierrez, national bestselling author of More Than You'll Ever Know

I love thrillers/suspense novels, and am one of those insufferable readers who pride themselves on being able to spot twists coming a mile away. But not this time -- I devoured this book in a single night, and could not put it down simply because I had no idea what was going on or what might be coming next. It was fast-paced and adrenaline-heavy, and once I finished it a little after 2am, I went and slept in the hallway outside of my children's rooms because I knew there was no way I would be able to relax otherwise. Even so, I freaking loved it. This book was absolutely incredible from start to finish!
