Category (Adult or YA)[]



Rachael Sorenson feared she would never escape her ex-husband's abuse. Then a passing stranger came to her rescue—a stranger who had watched her from afar.

He was a photographer, and Rachael was his perfect subject. He lived only to make her happy—and eliminate those who didn't.

Now he wants more than her beauty. She owes him her life—and he means to collect.

✥ In the early 1990s, Charles de Lint wrote and published three dark fantasy novels under the pen name "Samuel M. Key." Now, beginning with Angel of Darkness and From a Whisper to a Scream and concluding with I'll Be Watching You, Orb presents them for the first time under de Lint's own name. ~ Goodreads | I'll Be Watching You (Newford, #4) by Charles de Lint — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

Lists That Contain I'll Be Watching You (Newford, #4) by Charles de Lint ~ GR


Originally, Tor had planned to release all three of the horror novels I wrote under the name "Samuel M. Key" in one omnibus, but now they're publishing them in separate editions instead. Still to come from Orb Books (probably in 2003) is I'll Be Watching You, a straight thriller also set in Newford. ~ Charles de Lint: I'll Be Watching You (1992) Description
