    Not my favourite Julie Parsons book all too bleak and dark, but with an inevitable plot progression.

    Some plot twists were interesting but I agree with other reviews rather gloomy Ending not redeeming Rather cliche sadistic crazy bad guy that murders for no reason That said on positive note I was fine with how written I would not recommend to any of my friends.
