Where No One Will See

Lucia Scafetti, a Philly private eye, has tried to move out of the shadow of her infamous crime family. She has her own business, her beloved dog Rocco, and she’s starting to date the cute lawyer down the hall. Her life is upended when her notorious hitman father disappears while in search of the diamond and gold coins he stole from his last victim.

Lucia races to unravel the mystery of her father’s disappearance before a crooked and powerful cop beats her to it. Though Lucia’s allies are scanty and her enemies numerous, she tries to resist the questionable help on offer from her Mafiosi family. It looks like Lucia must finally decide on which side of the law she truly belongs, knowing the wrong choice could send her to prison – or an early grave.

Guest Review by Sal

An absolute thriller of a detective mystery that will leave you desperate for more! “Where No One Will See” by Felicia Watson is the kind of novel that makes you fall in love with the characters and leaves you guessing until the very last page.  

Lucia Scafetti is striking out on her own, and trying to make it without her family’s interference for the first time in her life. Growing up in a well known crime family, Lucia is trying her best to get her private detective agency off of the ground and build a better name for herself, but first she has to find some new clients.  

Luckily, two lawyers move into her building, and she quickly befriends them. Lucia really hits it off with one of them, a man named Hank, and the two begin dating. However, everything in Lucia’s life is thrown into jeopardy when her father, who has been incarcerated for many years, shows up on her doorstep asking for help.  

When he goes missing a day later, Lucia has to put everything she has into solving the case before she and her friends are put in danger, too.  

I had a great time reading this and a great time trying to figure out the resolution to the mystery before the ending! Felicia Watson has a great talent for writing compelling mysteries, and an even greater one for writing refreshing and delightful characters. I found myself rooting for Lucia from the very first chapter and was really hoping that she and Hank ended up together in the end.  

I won’t spoil the ending for you, but I think any reader would be happy with the way things work out. I’m giving all the stars to this magnificent novel, and I hope that Felicia Watson writes more mysteries like this in the future! It would be fantastic if we hear from Lucia again so, hopefully, there will be a sequel in the works!

Praise for Felicia Watson

‘It easily checked all my boxes required for a successful science-fiction novel and kept me flipping the pages time and time again.
What I liked the best about this story, however, is the feeling of discovery as the Lovelace travels farther and farther into the unknown. I have a soft spot for stories that take the reader where no one has ever been before and We Have Met the Enemy delivers this feeling in droves.”-Publisher’s Weekly, for We Have Met the Enemy

“The prose is supple and accurate. It begins with action. While the reader is given time to breathe, the action thereafter never really lets up…McGuffins are skillfully crafted, aliens are both imaginative and credible, and the tech is believable and serviceable without getting in the way.”- Judy Moore, Author of ‘Is Death Really Necessary?’, for Spooky Action at a Distance 

“A richly imagined and immersive starship tale.
Watson’s prose is filled with vivid worldbuilding details while still managing to feel urgent and punchy…. Though the book is preceded by two others, the story is self-contained enough for those new to the series to hit the ground running. The tale is thoroughly in the tradition of Star Trek…and fans of that franchise will enjoy Watson’s Roddenberrian world. The result is pure space opera, nothing more or less.”- Kirkus Reviews, for The Risks of Dead Reckoning

“`The author delivers an enthralling mystery.. There are whiplash-inducing plot turns throughout and a wholly gratifying final act. Hopefully Watson will give this unforgettable private eye her own well-deserved series. A clever, supercool gumshoe effortlessly steals the show in this delightful caper.”-Kirkus Reviews, for Where No One Will See
