A Stranger Is Watching book description
Ronald Thompson knows he never killed Nina Peterson… yet in two days the state of Connecticut will take his life, having found him guilty via due process of law.
But Thompson’s death will not stop the pain and anger of Nina’s husband, Steve. Thompson’s death will not still the fears of Nina’s six-year-old son, Neil, witness to his mother’s brutal slaying.

But in the shadows a stranger waits, a cunning psychopath who has killed before, who has unfinished business at the Peterson home…
