A good book, quick reading, and prime psychological thriller.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A courtroom drama, a character you root for, a brutal story yet engrossing. The character development was enticing and had me holding me breath at times.

Am feeling lucky to have chronic insomnia, otherwise I would probably have had nightmares with this read. It was a good book, but also....sickening, horrifying. I honestly don't understand this sort of sickness described in this novel. I was honestly not sure I'd be able to finish it as it took me back to a place I never wanted to see again. But a part of me is glad to have finished. I did kind of see ending coming, but wasn't 100% sure. I'd read more when she gets them out here. Just hopefully not as "dark". Happy Reading!
