Brought to you by Penguin.

There was someone in the house.

Home alone with her young children during a blizzard, a mother tucks her son back into bed in the middle of the night. Then she hears a noise - old houses are always making some kind of noise. But this sound is disturbingly familiar: it's the tread of footsteps, unusually heavy and slow, coming up the stairs...

In that split second, she has three choices.

Should she hide? Should she run? Or should she fight?

‘As tender as it is terrifying’ Abigail Dean
'Absolutely, breathtakingly superb' Sophie Hannah

‘You won’t be able to look away’ Shari Lapena

Reviews

Fiercely feminist and viscerally terrifying One of the most terrifying - and brilliant - thrillers I have ever read Tremendous, terrifying... I barely breathed while reading this incredibly tense, chilling thriller A chilling tale you may want to read during daylight hours Almost unbearably tense, suffused with fear without ever exploiting it Absolutely, breathtakingly superb . . . delivers the highest possible grip factor from first word to last, and a more satisfying resolution than I dared to hope for Nightwatching is acutely frightening and beautifully written, as tender as it is terrifying. I can't remember rooting for a character quite so hard Nightmarish . . . You won't be able to look away Heart-thumping and mesmerizing, a masterclass in tension and terror, it’s also a creative, thoughtful portrait of maternal fear and love. A must read One of the most haunting, gripping novels I've read in a long time Triumphs in a gripping and convincing finale Among the best debuts I’ve read in years Tackles some big themes such as motherhood and grief… you may want to read during daylight hours Hold-your-breath suspense As grippingly suspenseful as the plot is, Sierra’s first outing boasts other strengths just as noteworthy, from its transportingly eerie setting to its indelible main character, a petite, prototypical “good girl” pushed to the brink by years of being underestimated, patronized, and disbelieved by men with power. The icing on the cake is the splendid ending, which feels both surprising and inevitable Very few books are as sharp, clever and utterly terrifying as Nightwatching.
