Review quote

"Staub is boss when it comes to relaying fictionalized accounts of revulsion...Suspenseful, powerful, tense and-as usual-wonderfully written with an ending that will leave you guessing...A great read!" -- Suspense Magazine "The thrills are near constant & combined with the waking nightmare state of 9/11, result in a high-tension and deeply visceral tale that will leave readers in a crippling state of uncertainty. The fear, the paranoia, the desperation--it leaps right off the page and gets under your skin." -- Criminal Element "Wendy Corsi Staub has a frightening little tale that will make the reader think about sleeping with the lights on with the dog nearby, 'Nightwatcher.'" -- Iron Mountain Daily "This first book in a new trilogy starts off with a bang. The action builds right through to the explosive ending. Allison is a relatable character, and Staub really nails the atmosphere of New York immediately following 9/11. Four Stars!" -- RT BookReviews "This is a well written psychological thriller and narrates the lives or several characters in parallel during the 9/11 period...interesting and rewarding ending episode which paves the way for the sequel of the book" -- Mystery Tribune From the first thrilling chase scene, to the final page, Wendy Corsi Staub's Live To Tell is an incredible, fast-paced story of political intrigue, family crises and nail-biting suspense. I couldn't put it down. -- #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson "Solid gold suspense ... this one is a wild ride." -- Lee Child

Back cover copy

As the city sleeps in the early hours of September 10, 2001, the killer waits and watches, unaware of the cataclysm to come. Even the nightmare of 9/11 will not postpone his private reign of terror.

Allison Taylor adores her adopted city, New York, loving every minute of the invigorating urban hustle. But on a bright and clear September morning, the familiar landscape around her is savagely altered--and in the midst of widespread chaos and fear, a woman living upstairs from her is found, brutally slaughtered and mutilated.

For Allison . . . for her neighbor, James "Mack" MacKenna, desperately searching for news of his missing wife . . . for homicide detective Rocky Manzillo, hunting for a monster called "The Nightwatcher" amid the smoking ruins of a devastated city, this tragic day will hold a special horror. Because a different kind of terror has entered their lives . . . and it's coming to claim Allison Taylor as its next victim.
