I Am Watching You is an intense thriller by Teresa Driscoll. It asks all the right questions, and keeps you puzzling throughout.
The story focuses on the disappearance of a young girl named Anna Ballard who goes missing after a night out with her friend in London. The story subsequently takes place a year later, and deals with themes such as grief and guilt and the effect her disappearance has on everyone, ranging from family to friends to witnesses.
Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It kept me reading and reading and wanting to know what happened, who had done what and why. Without spoiling for anyone who has perhaps not read this book, I did not see the ending and was thoroughly surprised. Maybe I should up my thriller reading game?
Teresa Driscoll is a captivating writer, and perfectly balanced the interwoven lines of the characters and gave each character their own substance and backstory.
It was a nice read, and would recommend it to others (and have done already!)
