Watch What You Say
To what lengths will a woman go to save her family? Web-radio personality Bo Riccardi is pushed beyond her mental and physical limits when her husband, Oscar, is kidnapped by a man from her dark past. The abductor commands her to interview him live on her show, with Oscar’s life on the line.
Giving in, though, creates an endless nightmare for Bo, as Oscar’s captor begins to destroy her career and alienate everybody she loves.
Bo’s secret asset is chromesthesia, seeing colorful shapes that reveal the intentions behind anyone’s speech. She can literally watch what they say. But relying too much on this gift renders her vulnerable to the madman’s purpose, making her even less likely to rescue Oscar—and escape the guilt and shame that binds her to the kidnapper.
George Weinstein is the author of the award-winning suspense thriller Watch What You Say; the Southern mystery Aftermath; the Southern historical novel Hardscrabble Road; the novel of forgotten U.S. history The Five Destinies of Carlos Moreno; and the contemporary romance The Caretaker. His work also has been published in the Atlanta press and in regional and national anthologies, including A Cup of Comfort for Writers.
George is the President of the historic Atlanta Writers Club (founded in 1914), which he has helped to grow into one of the largest and most active writing organizations in the U.S. He has also managed the Atlanta Writers Conference for a decade, helping nearly three thousand writers make strides on their quest for publication. In 2018, readers of The Writer magazine voted the Atlanta Writers Conference the best in Georgia, casting more votes for it than any other writing conference in the nation.
