Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski

I received an uncorrected paperback proof copy of Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski through Goodreads Giveaways.

Below is my honest, unbiased review of Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski.

Mark Wisniewski is a new to me author. I enjoyed reading Watch Me Go. I thought Mark Wisniewski's writing was solid and good. I enjoyed the alternating chapters featuring Douglas “Deesh” Sharp's perspective in one chapter, followed by Jan Price's perspective in the next chapter. It made for a thrilling read. 

The following is a plot summary for Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski from Amazon:
Douglas “Deesh” Sharp has managed to stay out of trouble living in the Bronx, paying his rent by hauling junk for cash. But on the morning Deesh and two pals head upstate to dispose of a sealed oil drum whose contents smell and weigh enough to contain a human corpse, he becomes mixed up in a serious crime. When his plans for escape spiral terribly out of control, Deesh quickly finds himself a victim of betrayal—and the prime suspect in the murders of three white men.

When Jan, a young jockey from the gritty underworld of the Finger Lakes racetrack breaks her silence about gambling and organized crime, Deesh learns how the story of her past might, against all odds, free him from a life behind bars.

Interweaving Deesh’s and Jan’s gripping narratives, Watch Me Go is a wonderfully insightful work that examines how we love, leave, lose, redeem, and strive for justice. At once compulsively readable, thought-provoking, and complex, it is a suspenseful, compassionate meditation on the power of love and the injustices of hate.
I am giving Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Thanks for letting me know about another good thriller. There seem to be quite a few coming out. I have never won a Goodreads Giveaway. Do you know any tricks or is it just chance?

    1. There are no trick or tips that I know of for winning any Books through Goodreads. It's purely by chance that one wins books from the Goodreads Giveaway Program. I've been lucky enough to win 139 books from their giveaways in the past 3 years... This is a lot of books to win all things considered and I am grateful for all the books I've won through Goodreads.

      But to put things in a different perspective, I've entered over 11,200 of their giveaways, which means I've only won roughly 1% of all the giveaways I've entered.

      P. S. Watch Me Go by Mark Wisniewski is already available for purchase.

    2. Ah ha! That 1% explains it. And it follows the usual percentage for giveaway winners. So my trouble is I don't enter enough times. Thanks for clearing that up!

    3. Good luck and I hope you win some free books!
