Very dark and a bit hard to get started, but hauntingly intriguing once you do.

This book was a little drawn out for my liking but once I got into the book I had to know who did it. Many twists in this book that makes you think they figured it out but then someone else comes into play.

This book was good, however it was very gory. A couple of times I had to put it down because the violence was too much. I am glad I read to the end.
