Product Description

While attending a gala at Prescott University's lavish new campus, Hester Thursby and fellow guest, Detective Angela White, are called to the home of the college's owners, Tucker and Jennifer Matson. Jennifer claims that someone broke into Pinebank, their secluded mansion on the banks of Jamaica Pond. The more Hester and Angela investigate, the less they believe Jennifer's story, leaving Hester to wonder why she would lie.

When Hester is asked by the college's general manager to locate some missing alumni, she employs her research skills on the family and their for-profit university. Between financial transgressions, a long-ago tragedy, and rumors of infidelity, it's clear that the Matsons aren't immune to scandal or mishap. But when one of the missing students turns up dead, the mystery takes on new urgency.

Hester is edging closer to the truth, but as a decades-old secret collides with new lies, a killer grows more determined to keep the past buried with the dead . . .


“As the third installment in Edwin Hill’s mystery series, Watch Her is a sophisticated and gripping psychological thriller with sharp attention to character… Hill manages to keep the plot moving at a fast and engaging pace, while still paying special attention to detail and suspense.” -- Wesleyan Alumni Magazine

“A conflicted protagonist battles formidable opponents in a bid for a normal life.”--- Kirkus

“This complex case revolves around ‘mothers and daughters,’ as Hester knowingly muses, confronting fissures in her family as well as the Matsons’. Quirky characters complement the suspenseful plot. Readers will agree that a failing school makes a grade-A mystery.” -- Publishers Weekly

“Complex…Terrible choices made long ago add another layer to this solid mystery.” --Mystery Scene
