Praise For Nightwatcher…
— 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!”

“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”

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.
