When this novel appeared a few years ago in hardcover, I said in a review: "Wilson may flat out be the best plotter of my generation. Nightwatcher is dark, scary, and truly menacing. Wilson takes as his premise three inmates escaping a state hospital for the criminally insane." If you liked Halloween or Scream, you'll love Nightwatcher.
