An engaging intense action thriller!
The Watchman is a fast-paced suspenseful thriller that involves private investigator, Noah, who has special abilities. Noah tries to rescue victims, Cody and his mom, from the abusive and powerful judge who happens to be Cody’s dad. Along the way, they learn how much influence the judge had and the extent he would go to in order to keep his secrets hidden. While trying to keep Cody and his mom hidden and safe from the judge, Noah works on another case of a friend. Between the two cases, Noah finds himself in more predicaments than most people.
The Watchman was a captivating and well-written story. There were many twists and turns that created a believable yet unpredictable plot. There is a big plot twist towards the end of the book that several times I thought it would be crazy if it was, but then told myself there was no way. The author did a great job with the twist as it wasn’t very obvious. There was a lot of action and suspense and a touch of romance to keep my interest perked. This author really knows how to build up the suspense and keep your attention to the very end. The characters were well developed and engaging. V.B. Tenery did a good job of intertwining the different characters and their background story throughout. There was some Christianity subtly thrown into the story that I thought gave some added believability to Noah’s special gifts. There was no swearing or sex in this book, which I personally found refreshing. It is nice to read a book that doesn’t have that in there.
Theo Holland did a good job with the narration. He had a clear and crisp voice that was easy to follow. There was not much difference between his female and male voices but I liked that he didn’t try to do a false high voice for the female. Overall it was a good narration and brought the story to life.
This is the first book that I have read by V.B. Tenery and will certainly not be my last. I was not disappointed at all. I recommend The Watchman to anyone that enjoys reading a suspense/thriller that will keep you entertained all the way to the end while keeping you sitting on the edge of your seat.
