I'll Be Watching You
Courtney Cole, writing as Courtney Evan Tate
It's every mother's nightmare...but one she will not accept.
In an unthinkable flash, Emmy Fisher's 15-year-old daughter, Leah, seemingly drowns close to shore one summer night - at least that is what the police report says.
In deep grief, Emmy needs time and courage before she can enter Leah's bedroom. But when she does, she finds something at first bewildering, then unspeakable, as she begins to understand the full implications....
She uncovers evidence that Leah had been secretly involved with someone, someone perhaps older, someone with dark appetites.
Bit by bit, the last few months of Leah's life unfold in a terrifying way that Emmy can hardly imagine.
All she knows is that she has to find the person who took her sweet daughter's innocence. No matter the cost.
The truth will set her free. Or bury her.
