She's watching you, but who's watching her? Lily Gullick lives with her husband Aiden in a new-build flat opposite an estate which has been marked for demolition. A keen birdwatcher, she can't help spying on her neighbours. Until one day Lily sees something suspicious through her binoculars and soon her elderly neighbour Jean is found dead. Lily, intrigued by the social divide in her local area as it becomes increasingly gentrified, knows that she has to act. But her interference is not going unnoticed, and as she starts to get close to the truth, her own life comes under threat. But can Lily really trust everything she sees?

'Addictive and eerie, you'll finish the book wanting to chat about it' - Closer Magazine, Must Read 'A twisted homage to Hitchcock set in a recognisably post-Brexit broken Britain. Tense, fast-moving and with an increasingly unreliable narrator, The Watcher has all the hallmarks of a winner.' - Martyn Waites 'Ross Armstrong will feed your appetite for suspense' - Evening Standard 'Unreliable narrator + Rear Window-esque plot = sure-fire hit' - The Sun 'Brilliantly written...this psychological thriller is definitely one that will keep you up to the early hours. Five Stars.' - Heat, Book of the Week 'A dark, unsettling page turner' - Claire Douglas, author of Local Girl Missing. 'Creepy and compelling' - Debbie Howells author of The Bones of You 'The Watcher is an intense, unsettling read... one that had me feeling like I needed to keep checking over my shoulder as I read.; - Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me
