  • Watching from the Dark

    When Aidan witnesses Zoe’s murder over a video call he is reluctant to call the police – but what does he have to hide? I was a little apprehensive about reading this ‘anticipated follow-up to She Lies in Wait’ as I haven’t read the first book. I needn’t have worried however; although the detectives have their own issues, the crime presented here is very standalone and all of the characters are given enough of an introduction that you understand their backstories. I did however initially get a little confused as it jumped from the officers first names to surnames frequently which took me a little longer to get the hang of than if there had been some continuity. The crime itself is a good one - there aren’t too many characters and suspects involved that you get confused with who is who but enough that you don’t automatically guess who did it. There are a lot of red herrings, some less obvious than others and you end up suspecting pretty much everyone by the end. There are a lot of twists and turns which keep up the suspense and its nicely paced to keep you interested all the way through. I liked the jumps between Zoe’s timeline which cycle from months before the murder all the way up to the day she was killed which is interspersed with the investigation happening in ‘present time’. I really felt invested in the crime as well which was nice, although less so with the police officers and their dramas. I didn’t really feel that the police characters were as fleshed out as they could have been really – they seemed to lack a bit of personality or interesting spark which I have enjoyed from other authors of the same drama. I feel like my biggest grievance came from the end – without giving away any spoilers its quite a cliched ending which makes me a little sad for all the well-written twists on the way to it. If I was to describe the whole book and conclusion in a sentence, I think a lot of readers would roll their eyes! Overall Watching From the Dark is a well-constructed thriller but had a sadly cliched ending and a main cast of characters I felt oddly disconnected from. Thank you to NetGalley & Penguin UK – Michael Joseph for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
