Watching The Neighbors by Phillipa Saint is a fairly short read. This would be a good choice for people with limited time for reading. Ms Saint has delivered a well-written book. Mark is the only character so it's a bit on the sad side. He manages to liven up his life a bit by watching the naughty neighbors. This is an adult book. This could stand as a complete book but there is more to the story in 3 more books. This is not a cliff-hanger though.
