The Watchmen by Michael Allegretto
Lauren’s life was perfect—until the day someone targeted her child
Until she got pregnant, Lauren Caylor and her husband worked side by side in the high-pressure offices of one of Los Angeles’s most prestigious law firms. They moved out of LA for the sake of their daughter, but their marriage couldn’t stand the slow pace of suburban life, and their love withered away. Now married to a wonderfully understanding man named Richard, Lauren’s life is a suburban ideal—and it is about to be destroyed.
It starts one afternoon when she notices a car following her home from work. Next, a pair of recluses moves into the house across the street, sending Richard into a strange panic. When it becomes clear that their family is being threatened, Richard promises to take action. But Lauren is beginning to fear that her husband may be the one who can’t be trusted.
“[Allegretto] writes impressively in the tight-lipped school of prose that, handled well, can raise emotional bruises.” —The New York Times
“Allegretto builds this tidy, tantalizing thriller to a satisfying conclusion with his usual aplomb.” —Publishers Weekly
