Summary of The Night Watch Summary of The Night Watch Reviews for The Night Watch An Excerpt from The Night Watch
Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked-out streets, illicit partying, and sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, The Night Watch tells the story of four Londoners-three women and a young man with a past-whose lives, and those of their friends and lovers, connect in tragedy, stunning surprise and exquisite turns, only to change irreversibly in the shadow of a grand historical event.

“[A] wonderful novel…Waters is almost Dickensian in her wealth of description and depth of character.”
Chicago Tribune
 
“Waters has the gift of story, the ability to dissolve the distance between reader and subject until nothing but experience remains.”
Los Angeles Times
 
“Compelling…sexually and psychologically provocative.”
USA Today
