Always Watching

     Suspense, intrigue, espionage - maybe less of the latter and more of the former. I'm still trying to decide if the title of Always Watching is meant to be creepy or comforting, though I suppose it's suitable for both, taking into consideration the plot of a murderous stalker pitted against a hired bodyguard agency. Both sides of the fight are always on the lookout.

     Eason trails Wade Savage, a rich and famous radio show-host and psychiatrist, who seems to have acquired a rather eccentric and dangerous fan: a stalker that leaves gifts too specific to be guesses. Whoever it is knows things about him and his daughter that they couldn't know without watching them closely. Against Wade's wishes, his father hires a bodyguard agency to keep an eye on him, and they go unnoticed until one night when Wade is attacked at his radio station and his bodyguard is nearly killed.

     They tighten security. They assign a larger, closer detail to accompany both Wade and his daughter, at all times, especially after his daughter Amy is targeted more directly. Bomb squads, raging fires, gun shots, knife fights - what more can you ask for in a suspense novel? Besides a side dish of romance, which there is, naturally. And the relationships that develop between Wade, his daughter Amy, and their bodyguards are quite fun to follow.
