Product Description


A GRIPPING SERIAL KILLER THRILLER


An entire family is murdered and, by a quirk, a young girl is left unharmed. For fifteen years, she believed the killer had been caught, and he’s now on death row, awaiting execution. While trying to be content with her adoptive family, she’s living in relentless uncertainty and the fear of remembering what really happened that night when she was five years old. She’s The Watson Girl.

A therapist has asked her to participate in regression session treatments to attempt to bring back those lost memories. The closer she gets to the truth, however, the less time she has to remain alive. Now, the real killer is going to silence her, before she can remember the details of that horrifying night, when she was an innocent witness.

Laura Watson is young, she’s beautiful, and she’s a serial killer's loose end.

Join the smart, relentless, and short-fused FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett and her team in a heart-stopping search for the serial killer who has managed to stay hidden for many years. Explore the inner workings of the murderer’s mind, and find out what motivates such predatory, blood-lusting behavior, while following every twist and turn of an existence spent taking lives.

Laura Watson’s family was murdered fifteen years ago.
That was only the beginning. His beginning.
If you’re the apple of his eye, you’re already dead.


Special Agent Tess Winnett will hold nothing back to stop the killer before he takes another innocent life. She never fails, no matter what’s at stake. Even her own life.

The best-selling author of Dawn Girl is back with another suspenseful, gripping thriller. If you’re a fan of David Baldacci and James Patterson, you will enjoy Leslie Wolfe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Thrilling Tess Winnett Adventure - And a Really Evil Villain! 24 January 2017
By Frequent Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett, tough but psychologically troubled pursuer of the most evil of serial killers, made her literary debut in “Dawn Girl.” Now, she’s back in “The Watson Girl” with an even tougher problem, to stop a serial killer who has been overlooked by law enforcement and living in plain sight for years – and is very likely to kill again within days. Although Tess knows who the victim will be, she is prohibited from alerting the Watson girl to her peril. Tess has to marshal all her training, intellect, and instinct if she’s going to win this race against time.

This is a fast-paced thriller with a complex and fascinating lead character in Tess. But, the author didn’t limit her creative attention to only Tess. All of the secondary characters are well-developed with traits and quirks that make them interesting people, any one of which could have emerged as a main character as the plot moved forward. These character details are revealed with no slowing of the pace, and this richness supports masterful and believable dialog that keeps the burners on high.

The author also devotes considerable well-researched and fascinating attention to the villain. While most of the story is narrated in the third person, this is interspersed with periodic first-person narration by the mysterious psychopath, providing the reader with a chance to stare directly into the abyss. As the bad guy says at one point, “You see, I’m not like you; not in the slightest.” Somehow, the author manages to provide keen insight into the mind of a psychopath while simultaneously advancing our understanding of the story as a whole and the relationship among its various subplots.

It’s probably worth noting that both “Dawn Girl” and “The Watson Girl” stand entirely on their own. If you haven’t already read “Dawn Girl,” you’ve missed a really good read, but you can jump right into this one without a problem. Since this is the second novel in a nascent Tess Winnett collection, I assume we have a few more equally compelling novels to look forward to. I certainly hope so!

5.0 out of 5 stars FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett rocks!!!! 1 February 2017
By hellcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Love, love, love me some Tess Winnett!!!! Her own tragic past, social quirks, and relentless pursuit of the bad guys just make you love her even more. Dawn Girl and The Watson Girl were terrific story telling and I really enjoyed both books. I already can't wait for the next book in the series! I'm hoping for just a hint of romance for Tess. Nothing major (because it's still about the her catching the bad guys) but maybe a little whisper of something between Tess and Gary. He's rather down-to-earth, like Catman, and Tess needs those kinds of people to help ground her and give her some "normal" in her crazy life. I like Bill, but as a profiler he sees too much and Tess needs someone who doesn't see all her secrets written on her face. I think Gary's the kind of guy she can take baby steps with. Gosh I really hope they end up together. I also liked how The Watson Girl let us see a different side of Pearson at the end. He's turning into a bit of a big brother/father figure looking out for Tess behind the scenes - would never have guessed that from the way he was with her before. All in all, I can't wait to see where the series goes!

5.0 out of 5 stars ‘Laura Watson is young, she’s beautiful, and she’s a serial killer's loose end.’ 24 January 2017
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Florida author Leslie Wolfe has assumed the role of the feminine counterpart to the Tom Clancy, Lee Child, Ian Fleming set, proving that indeed women can equal if not surpass the established norm of espionage techno-thrillers. One of the many reasons Leslie makes her novels work is her creation of strong female roles – something her male counterparts have found it difficult to do. Another couple of pluses in her corner are her penetrating interest in both psychology and technology – both of which she employs to fine use in this thriller.

Leslie’s current book THE WATSON GIRL is hopefully Book 1 in a series – Serial Killer Thriller series– because it is just that fine. The manner in which she addresses the horrors and psychological terror of the serial killer’s mind is only part of the sophistication of the tenor of this new book. . She jolts us into her story in the first paragraph: ‘He knocked on the door with the barrel of his gun, then screwed on a silencer while waiting for someone to welcome him in. He checked the surroundings one more time. In the heavy dusk, shadows were long, and sounds were too few to disturb the suburban peacefulness. A dog barked in the neighborhood somewhere, and sounds of remote highway traffic were so distant he could barely register them. The two-story house had warmly illuminated windows on both floors, with white sheers that made the soft lights shimmer, and gave the massive, Colonial Revival home a fairy-tale look. The distant sound of a cartoon made it all the way to the dimly lit porch. He recognized the guttural voice of Daffy Duck. Only one car was parked on the wide, three-car garage driveway, the silver minivan Rachel Watson liked to use while performing the functions of modern-day motherhood, with one or more of her three children loaded in the back seats. Allen Watson’s car was nowhere in sight. But Watson always garaged his Benz, careful not to get a speck of dust on the custom paint that must have set him back a small fortune. Even if he couldn’t see his car, he knew Watson was home. He knew it because he didn’t leave anything to chance.’

The complex story is well outlined in the synopsis: ‘An entire family is murdered and, by a quirk, a young girl is left unharmed. For fifteen years, she believed the killer had been caught, and he’s now on death row, awaiting execution. While trying to be content with her adoptive family, she’s living in relentless uncertainty and the fear of remembering what really happened that night when she was five years old. She’s The Watson Girl. A therapist has asked her to participate in regression session treatments to attempt to bring back those lost memories. The closer she gets to the truth, however, the less time she has to remain alive. Now, the real killer is going to silence her, before she can remember the details of that horrifying night, when she was an innocent witness. Laura Watson is young, she’s beautiful, and she’s a serial killer's loose end. Join the smart, relentless, and short-fused FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett and her team in a heart-stopping search for the serial killer who has managed to stay hidden for many years. Explore the inner workings of the murderer’s mind, and find out what motivates such predatory, blood-lusting behavior, while following every twist and turn of an existence spent taking lives. Laura Watson’s family was murdered fifteen years ago. That was only the beginning. His beginning. If you’re the apple of his eye, you’re already dead. Special Agent Tess Winnett will hold nothing back to stop the killer before he takes another innocent life. She never fails, no matter what’s at stake. Even her own life.’

That about sums up the plot, but it doesn’t do justice to the writing skill of Leslie Wolfe – that you can only appreciate by spending time in the terrifying world she has created. But rest assured, we are in fine hands with the major important figure of Tess Winnett. She’s on it, and we’re in it. Grady Harp, January 17

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying 12 March 2017
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having read both Dawn Girl and The Watson Girl I need a break to get my blood pressure down. My drapes will never be open again! I love Special Agent Tess Winnet and feel she is perfectly flawed and tragic. I truly hope serial killers have not evolved to the level you portray but I suspect your research and knowledge of the subject is sadly correct. Should Tess return I will have to join her as she hunt's down another monster. You had me worried near the end that she would not survive this one. You have a dedicated fan Mr. Wolfe thank you .

Enjoyed every minute of this book. I will be reading more of her material. The first chapter really didn't align with who the killer really was in my opinion. But it didn't take away from the book at all. Loved it!!!!
