In the summer following his junior year in high school (and long before he became a detective), Minnesotan Jonathan Stride fell in love with Cindy Starr. But in the midst of their bliss, Cindy's sister, Laura, was brutally killed in the woods near their suburban Duluth home. Police pointed the finger at a local drifter, but both Jonathan and Cindy believed the killer was someone Laura knew. A lot has happened in the 30 years since. Cindy succumbed to cancer, and Jonathan found peace with a new romantic partner, former Las Vegas PI Serena Dial. When Cindy's high-school friend Tish returns to town with news that she's writing a book about Laura's death, Jonathan wants more than anything to let the past remain the past, but Tish's presence prompts him to reconsider the case-and the possibility that a local citizen may have gotten away with murder.--From

This was a re-read for me. I thought it wasn't nearly as good as the previous 3 books in the series with Stride/Bei/and Dial. It was interesting but the book's rhythm seemed to stall at times and it was hard for it to get going again

I really enjoyed this book. I have just discovered this author upon reading Stalked. I found this book moved more quickly than the previous one. The plot takes quite a few turns and I had no idea who the guilty party was so that is always a bonus!

This Minnesota author is excellent. I can relate to the areas in Duluth because I am from there.

This book is also called The Watcher (depending on whether or not it's the US or UK edition).

A peeping Tom is the subject that the story keeps coming back to. Stride is asked to look into an unsolved murder from his youth of his future wife's sister. He and she were tangentially involved at the time.
