Ten years ago, Jess’s mother was murdered by the Magpie Man.
She was the first of his victims but not the last.
Now Jess is the star of a YouTube reality series and she’s using it to catch the killer once and for all.
The whole world is watching her every move.
And so is the Magpie Man.
Are you Watching is a very addictive, well written YA thriller with a modern day take as one young girl joins a reality t.v. show to try and catch her mother’s killer. But baiting a serial killer may not be the best idea ever….
Vincent Ralph manages to get the emotion v the thrills bang on target – this is a serial killer thriller and works well on that level but it is also a tale of grief, loss and trying to move forward. I related very much to both Jess and her Dad, whilst you do have to occasionally suspend disbelief as to what he lets her get up to, their family unit is intriguing and melancholy.
With plenty of twists to keep mystery fans happy and an ending that works, Are You Watching is a great addition to the YA genre.
