Description
Twelve years ago, librarian Betsy Treading was convicted of murdering her neighbor, the bohemian loner Linda Sue. After DNA testing finally exonerates Betsy, she returns to her suburban community determined to salvage her life and find the true killer. As she begins to pick apart the web of secrets, lies, and love affairs uncovered in the wake of her trial, Betsy suspects that her tight-lipped neighbors may know something that she has denied even to herself. In Neighborhood Watch, Cammie McGovern captures the nail-biting electricity of the best literary thrillers and zeros in on the subterranean tension abuzz in a town whose dark secrets threaten to obliterate the glossy facade of a perfect life. It is also the story of a woman coming into her own, finding her strength, and taking control of her life. It asks, what sort of price would you pay for the sake of your reputation? Intricately woven, psychologically astute, and filled with complex and surprising characters, Neighborhood Watch marks a significant step in the career of this talented author.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: A murder, a sleep disorder, a DNA test, an alternative energy source, a childless couple, a neighborhood watch group, and a troubled teenager--it seems unlikely that this motley combination of plot points could coalesce into a compelling story. However, listeners will be surprised as Coleen Marlo gently draws them into the mystery of "The Librarian"--an unassuming woman serving time for murdering her neighbor, the abrasive Linda Sue. Marlo's understated voice makes the unexpected events both reasonable and believable. When the accused is freed, thanks to DNA evidence, she hunts for the real killer and uncovers the dark side of her quaint neighborhood. The slow unraveling of this mystery is a thread worth following. L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from March 29, 2010
        In this superb suburban thriller from McGovern (Eye Contact
        ), newly tested DNA evidence results in the release from prison of Betsy Treading (aka “the Librarian Murderess”) after serving 12 years for the bludgeoning of sexy divorcée Linda Sue Nelson, a neighbor in Milford, Conn. Betsy, a somnambulist, had confessed out of fear she'd done the deed while sleepwalking. Back home in Milford, Betsy determines to find out who really killed Linda Sue, who was having an affair with their married neighbor, charismatic author Geoffrey Steadman, who was a friend of Betsy's then husband, Paul. Now divorced from Paul, Betsy accepts temporary lodgings with an old friend and neighbor, Marianne Rashke, founder of the local neighborhood watch group. McGovern, a former Stegner Fellow at Stanford, seductively unreels Betsy's pursuit of the truth one shocking spool at a time. Fans of literary suspense fiction will be well rewarded. 4-city author tour.
