Ex-detective John Right likes to watch.

There’s no harm in it.

The latest object of his obsession—a twenty-something stranger who chains his bike outside John’s office—doesn’t feel the weight of John’s eyes on him, doesn’t know about the secret recordings or what John does with them in the dead of night. Except when the kid disappears, John finds himself doing far more that just watching.

Reluctantly, John has to start thinking like a cop once more as he frantically tries to track down his mystery man. Although when he finds him, John is left with more questions than answers. And the more he learns, the more he wishes he’d never started looking in the first place.

Can John get to the bottom of the mystery without giving away his own dirty secret? And without giving in to his urge to do more than simply watch?

Well…nobody’s perfect.

“As it’s quite obvious from my writing, this was my favorite read of this year’s submissions. This was the perfect mystery for me and I found it hard to put it down. John Right read a bit like Monk, if Monk was cool and hot and had a tragic backstory. His stalker behavior was creepy and endearing at the same time and I loved that all the other characters, while understanding it and its causes, never brushed it off as nothing to worry about. The investigation and the romance intertwining made this read more enjoyable for me and I just couldn’t put it down until I finished reading it.”
