Image of Always Watching: A Novel

Superstar Stevens’ third book is intelligent, suspenseful and shocking. The world that she creates is engrossing and it is impossible to put the book down. After being a secondary character in the last two books, Nadine Lavoie takes center stage. Her struggles are relatable and the cult is so fully fleshed out and detailed it feels like another character.

Nadine was raised in a tumultuous household with an alcoholic father and an unstable mother who decided one day to join a commune. Now a therapist, Nadine must confront her own secrets when a patient is brought in with a very similar past. She knows she must look at her past in the commune to understand why many of her memories of that time are blocked. Soon she uncovers secrets that many people would do anything to keep hidden. (ST. MARTIN’S, Jun., 352 pp. $25.99)
