"the kind of thriller that contains so many good plot devices you worry that the author might have emptied their imagination store"

That a person who inexplicably owns the handbag of an infamous murder victim found in Los Angeles in 1947, the Black Dahlia, is linked with an accomplice who it is suspected is bumping people off around the Clyde somehow messes with our self-reassurance that such things could never happen here. As the pressure mounts on the two police forces to find the final victim, the reader is swept along by their growing sense of desperation. The plot is a complicated one, but Robertson is a master storyteller – sensitive, realistic, terrifying and humorous – and Watch Him Die is never less than gripping.
