'Perfect for fans of Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh' Reader review 

ONLY ONE PERSON CAN SAVE YOU. AND HE WANTS YOU DEAD. 
 
Police find a man dead at his home in Los Angeles. Nothing suggests foul-play but elements of the victim’s house show that something is deeply wrong.

Meanwhile, in Glasgow, DI Rachel Narey is searching for a missing young woman – and the man she suspects of killing her.

When a feed broadcasting the slow and painful death of a final victim is discovered, these two cases become linked.

There’s no way to identify him.
No way to find him
No way to save him.
Not without the cooperation of a killer.

And the only way he will cooperate is if he can watch him die.

The gripping new novel from the acclaimed author of Murderabilia and The Photographer, both nominated for the McIlvanney Prize.

Praise for Craig Robertson:

'Packed full of tension, Watch Him Die is a brilliantly unnerving read - an original premise with a devilishly clever execution, the story unfolds with expert precision. I flew through the pages, sick with dread. An excellent thriller from a crime stalwart - in fact, this might be his best yet'  SJI Holliday, author of Violet

‘Robertson, a maestro of Tartan noir, twins a dogged Glasgow detective with her counterparts in Los Angeles, but can this formidable team find a psycho killer who seems to leave no trace? High-concept plot keeps the 'tecs and the reader on their toes’ Sunday Times, Crime Club

‘Exceptionally talented . . . This is truly difficult to put down’ Daily Mail

'Robertson is a master storyteller – sensitive, realistic, terrifying and humorous – and Watch Him Die is never less than gripping’ The Scotsman

'A thoroughly modern, breathless thriller that not only showcases the writer’s broad spectrum of talents. Plenty for fans to get on board with here and a fantastic introduction to one of Scotland’s premier crime writers’ Scottish Sun

'Brilliantly and sensitively written' Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of Thirteen

'Craig Robertson’s Narey and Winter series goes from strength to strength, and this latest instalment is the most compelling. Brace yourself to be horrified and hooked' Eva Dolan

'I can't recommend this book highly enough' Martina Cole
