Publisher's Summary

In September 2001 Carmen Rodriguez, a beautiful 32-year-old Hartford mother of four, went missing. At first police were stymied - until a killer's crucial mistake led investigators down a long, dark road of cold, calculated murder.In 1987 single mother Mary Ellen Renard was strangled, repeatedly stabbed, and left for dead in her New Jersey apartment. Her vicious assailant had already killed once - and would kill again. But unlike the fiend's other victims, Mary Ellen lived to tell the tale.Clean-cut, popular, and on the fast track at a multinational computer firm, Rutgers grad Edwin "Ned" Snelgrove shocked friends and colleagues with a plea bargain for Renard's brutal attack - and the heinous 1983 murder of college girlfriend Karen Osmun. Vowing never to be caught again, Ned spent his time in prison obsessively studying the violent career of his idol Ted Bundy...then was released 10 years early for good behaviorUnflinching and brilliantly researched, this is an exclusive tour into the twisted mind of an all-American killer and a state attorney's tireless efforts to lock him away forever.

My only fear about the book "I'll Be Watching You", by William Phelps was I might have been fired from my job if any person saw me listening to it while working.

Between Phelps and his reader J. Charles, it was impossible for me to be disappointed. The characters are real. There will be times while listening, you will also have problems taking off your headset.

Ned is a SERIAL KILLER. As I listened to this fantastic Audio Book, my imagination went wild. I actually felt as if I was looking through a window experiencing the entire story.

For me, regardless of any negative reviews from others, "I'll Be Watching You" ranks in my top five True Crime Books I have ever read.

A good listen!

I thought this was a very interesting story! True crime at its best! I really like this author, he is in my opinion, one of the best true crime writers and I've listened to several. This book made me sad for the victims of this psychopath and mad that our justice system is so messed up! In the end justice finally prevailed but too bad another life had to be taken first! The narrater was awesome! Best narrater I have ever heard! Can't wait to listen to him again! Thanks J. Charles!!
