The Watcher

(2020)
(The first book in the Kateri Fisher series)
A novel by

 
 
From the award-winning author of The Scamp, Jennifer Pashley is back with a searing literary noir about what it means to live on the margins of society and what happens when no one is watching...

Pearl Jenkins is a nobody. She was a woman who lived as a hermit in the woods. One day, she's nowhere to be found, and all that's left behind is a pool of blood and a child no one knew existed, raised completely off the grid and in the grip of Pearl's manic paranoia.

Kateri Fisher is used to being an outsider. Now, she's the only female detective in the tiny upstate New York town of Spring Falls, where everyone knows everyone, but no one will talk. It's fitting that she takes the case that no one else wants. But as Kateri struggles to navigate the harsh rules of a new town while trying to learn the truth about the Jenkins family, only one thing becomes clear: neither she nor Pearl are as invisible as she first thought. Someone's always watching.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"The Watcher is a taut literary thriller about desperation, desire, and what people are capable of when they've got nothing left to lose. Pashley's masterful prose makes your heart ache and your pulse pound for every single character populating this chilly, unforgiving--and unforgettable--world." - Layne Fargo

"Pashley's seamless, yet meticulous writing pulls the reader into the bleak world of rural upstate New York...Atmospheric and dark, yet emotionally compelling, The Watcher is simply phenomenal on all counts. Jennifer Pashley is nothing short of a rising star." - Wendy Walker
