This book was enjoyable and much more complicated than I expected. Sometimes it was hard to read to get a grip on what exactly was being said.

Excellent thriller from a new author!

A dead teenager is left in the middle of town, dressed and posed like a doll. As the investigation unfolds, secrets of even the police department are uncovered. Continuous action and a shocking ending make this book hard to put down!

Slow Slow Slow!!!

Started out quick with the murder of a young girl then it's just pages and pages of nothing.

I didn't like any of the characters and just couldn't get drawn into this book.

I picked this up because there was a recommendation from a favorite author, Michael Prescott. However, I was disappointed until the book finally showed promise 3/4 of the way through and held my interest enough that I purchased the second in the series. Hopefully she got better after her debut.
