Given the current climate associated with the #Metoo movement, this story is timely in spite of the actual time frame. Rocketing from the first chapter, Greg Iles has created a story told through the eyes of Catherine Ferry, an emotionally troubled woman whose been living a life of secrets due to childhood abuse. Like a jigsaw puzzle, a string of murders launches her into discovery, much of it gruesome. And with each element she uncovers, she manages to assemble the critical pieces of the serial murders. Like a snowball growing in size as it careens down a hill, the story comes to an explosive, surprise climax, typical of all books by this author. In the early stages, its easy to draw parallels betweem Dr. Malik and Hannibal Lechter though later on, this changes as does everything else. Having read six other stories by this author, this is yet another top notch page turner, and unique since the narrative is a female. Highly recommended for those who love page turners!

I really enjoyed this book. It was an excellent mix of a serious subject with a thriller, with good character development, good dialogue, and a good pace. The only thing I didn't like is that it had to end
