A therapist has asked her to participate in regression session treatments to attempt to bring back those lost memories. The closer she gets to the truth, however, the less time she has to remain alive.

The best-selling author of Dawn Girl is back with another suspenseful, gripping thriller. If you’re a fan of David Baldacci and James Patterson, you will enjoy Leslie Wolfe.

Praise for The Watson Girl

“Love, love, love me some Tess Winnett!!!!”

“‘You know a psychopath when you see one…’ Maybe Leslie Wolfe is a psychopath or just a heck of a researcher (hope’s the second one), but after Silence of the Lambs, and some top Criminal Minds episodes is hard to find a book that will abduct you the way that this one abducted me… Fantastic writing and scary way of â??thinking as the serial killer…!’ Bravo!”

“Wow!!! This book was so dang good!!! I couldn’t read it fast enough.”

This is the first book I’ve read by Leslie Wolfe and WOW, if you like serious thrillers, this one is for you. A serial killer is on death row for many killings. Everyone is sure they have the right man for ALL the killings, but DO they? Be careful, this is a page turner, don’t start if you are sleepy.

“Oh, my what to say! First, I almost missed my flight since I somehow buried myself in this book. Of course, I have now ordered the entire season. I think this will make me a Leslie Wolfe fan. It has been many years since I got hooked on an author. Thank you!”

“Loved it! Couldn’t put it down. Would fall asleep reading my kindle, wake up in the middle of the night and start reading again! Kept me guessing until the end.”

What Readers and Reviewers Are Saying About Leslie Wolfe

“Leslie Wolfe has the talent that is comparable to the likes of a Tom Clancy or a Michael Crichton, or even James Patterson.” – Dennis Waller

“Wolfe keeps readers turning the pages…” – Kirkus Reviews
