This book was dark. And creepy. The type of story that makes the reader squeeze their eyes shut and remind themselves that in this instance, the story they’re reading is (thankfully) fiction.
The premise was fresh – I didn’t feel like this was a re-telling of a story I’ve read a dozen times. The writing was good. And, despite the subject matter, this mystery was enjoyable.
This is one of those stories where the reader has to ask themselves what they would do in the same situation, only to determine that there are no clear, easy answers.
I’m not sure I’ll search out another book by this author, but this one was worth reading. 5 stars.
