Watching You by Gemma Halliday is a short story with the aim of getting the reader to read further, longer novels by the author. The promotion idea might be good in some cases, but I think this story does not do the job. It is bland with little excitement which is some sort of accomplishment when the story is about hitmen, lawyers, and FBI agents. In my opinion, it would be better to direct reader attention to the Amazon samples of the longer works. Based on this story, I will download a sample of Halliday’s longer work and decide whether to buy the full novel or not. This short story does not inspire me to look further.
