Synopsis

"Riveting, emotionally rich, original, and beautifully written, this book kept me up too late reading, had me sneaking in pages the next day. They're Watching reminded me what it's like to be in the thrall of a great story: helpless until the end, loving every minute of it."—Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Die for You

Patrick Davis is a man with troubles. First his Hollywood dreams crumble and then his storybook marriage hits a snag. Now, DVDs start being delivered to his house—DVDs which show that someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden in their house. Then the e-mails start, and someone offers to fix everything, to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it's the offer of a lifetime.
But Patrick couldn't be more wrong. With every step he falls deeper into a web of intrigue that threatens everything he values in this world. Before he knows it, he's in and in deep—and his only escape is to outwit and outplay his unseen opponents at their own game.

Hurwitz has crafted a story so full of unexpected twists and turns, the reader is guessing until the very last words. Not many who pick it up will succumb to the temptation to put it down before they’re through. Yes, it’s that good.

THEY’RE WATCHING is a powerful work from a major talent who has yet to be fully and adequately appreciated.

Reviewed by Todd VanDerWerff on Aug 05 2010

Sadly, a book that started with a lot of emotional acuity for its genre falls more and more out of touch with its characters, until it ends in a place that’s more than a little cold.

He keeps us constantly on our toes, and—this is especially good—he keeps us guessing right until the very last pages about exactly who has targeted Patrick and why. Highly recommended...
