Gripping psychological suspense from the number one bestselling author of Then She Was Gone, as what begins as an innocent crush develops into a dangerous infatuation.
Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998.
Fifteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafU where she can drink coffee, people-watch and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done . . .

"Then She Was Gone was my favourite thriller last year and this is even better. Brilliantly plotted and impossible to put down, it kept me guessing until the very end." -- Alice Feeney, author of Sometimes I Lie
"Page one intrigued me. Page three hooked me. By page five, I was consumed. This compulsive, propulsive novel is both a seize-you-by-the-throat thriller and a genuinely moving family drama. Stellar." -- A J Finn
"She's done it again! Lisa Jewell has penned the page-turner of the summer. Emotionally-engrossing and utterly compelling, with a mystery that keeps you gripped until the last heart-wrenching page." -- Tammy Cohen
"Watching You by the scarily talented Lisa Jewell is set to be one of THE reads of the summer. Expertly crafted with a cast of fabulous and intricately drawn characters, this story will keep you glued to your sun-bed and have you guessing until the final heartrending sentence. Superb." -- Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake
"I've always been jealous of her. I've always envied her ability to write a sentence. She's written a couple of psychological thrillers and her plotting is really great but her characterisation is great as well." -- Marian Keyes
