I was just talking with a coworker about this book. It's set in Fort Worth, Texas, where my coworker used to live. I had thought maybe the neighborhood where the book's peeping tom was operating was a fictional neighborhood shoehorned into a real city, but my coworker managed to find it on a map. So now I'm wondering if the residents of that neighborhood know about this book, how they feel about the peeping tom aspect, etc. I could see living in a specific neighborhood referenced in a book (particularly a contemporary-set one like this) being both cool and weird.
At the moment, I can only recall reading maybe three books set in places I knew well. Two of those were set in my home town - one dealt with an area of town I didn't know much about, and one made me laugh because the author had clearly also grown up in the same area (we had the same grumpy childhood complaints about having to come up with Halloween costumes that worked well with winter coats).
