Nightwatcher [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Nightwatcher" by Wendy Corsi Staub.

From the Back Cover

As the city sleeps in the early hours of September 10, 2001, the killer waits and watches, unaware of the cataclysm to come. Even the nightmare of 9/11 will not postpone his private reign of terror.

Allison Taylor adores her adopted city, New York, loving every minute of the invigorating urban hustle. But on a bright and clear September morning, the familiar landscape around her is savagely altered — and in the midst of widespread chaos and fear, a woman living upstairs from her is found, brutally slaughtered and mutilated.

For Allison for her neighbor, James "Mack" MacKenna, desperately searching for news of his missing wife   for homicide detective Rocky Manzillo, hunting for a monster called "The Nightwatcher" amid the smoking ruins of a devastated city, this tragic day will hold a special horror. Because a different kind of terror has entered their lives and it's coming to claim Allison Taylor as its next victim.

My Review:

Allison Tayler has recently moved to New York and she is enjoying living there.  Then her friend living upstairs from her is brutally murdered and mutilated.

Allison's neighbor James "Mack" MacKenna is frantically looking for news of his missing wife and homicide detective Rocky Manzillo is hunting for a monster dubbed "The NightWatcher" among the devastating 9/11 events.

I hate to admit it took me a few days to finish this book because it didn't really catch my interest.  I did enjoy the storyline and I felt bad for Allison because she's innocent and bad things keep happening to her and around her.  A few characters were shallow and self absorbed that didn't really cared about them but I wouldn't wish what happened to them.
