Clair Poulson is one of my very favorite clean suspense authors. He really just has a way with writing suspense novels. And his characters are so great!
This one is told from the perspective of Gage Tipton, the detective assigned to the case. I loved Gage’s character. He was smart and able to do whatever was needed to figure out this case. Everything from quick thinking to scuba diving.
I loved the way this book has crazy situation after crazy situation. They all seemed like coincidences, but they all kind of interconnect. Everything to the woman Gage is dating to someone seeing some men at night on the lake. Wow, the plot of this one really kept me guessing!
There are so many characters in this one, and they’re all great! I loved them all, except for the bad guys of course.
This is one suspense book you won’t want to put down! Make sure to get your own copy!
Watch Your Back is an exciting book to read. Main character Detective Gage Tipton was my favorite in the novel. Though he had so many things riding against him, including the bad guys going after him and his potential love interest, Gage just doesn't get a break that often. The thing I loved most about this novel is that it plays out in your mind like an action movie. The criminals in the book always stay a step ahead of everyone else that keeps the readers on edge. The "BAD" guys in this novel are very bad reminiscent of the mafia.
I devoured this book over a single weekend reading it as often as I could. It was a hard one to put down, so I suggest you put aside a good amount of time to sit down and read this novel. It would be a great book to listen to on Audible. Clair Poulson has written so many great novels in the past, but I would put this up there as one of his very best. I loved it! With so much action and intrigue, this thriller will keep you jumping and pacing until the final dramatic end.
