New from the author of Eye Contact, "a page turner...[that] uncovers a host of dark suburban secrets" (People)
After twelve years in prison, Betsy Treading is released when new DNA evidence irrefutably proves that she didn't murder her eccentric and noticeably single neighbor, Linda Sue Murphy. But Betsy quickly discovers that innocence in court doesn't redeem her in the eyes of old friends. To clear her name and find Linda Sue's true killer, the former librarian unravels the web of denial, delusion, and secrets that has ensnared her community. A psychological tour de force, Neighborhood Watch rips the surface off a seemingly idyllic world and keeps readers guessing until the very last page.
Suburbia reveals itself to be a cruel and multifariously dishonest place in Cammie McGovern's suspenseful NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH. Twelve years ago Betsy Treading confessed to the murder of her neighbor Linda Sue. She did not remember committing the crime, but the blood stains on her pajamas convinced her that she was guilty of a sleep-walking crime. When DNA evidence proves her innocence, Betsy returns to suburban Connecticut to find the real killer. McGovern introduces a suspicious, secret-holding cast of characters--from the sexy neighbor who had been having an affair with the victim to the victim's daughter and Betsy's ex-husband (who she suspects is gay)--that will keep readers guessing till the very end.
