Thank you to Netgalley for the ability to read this book in return for an honest review.
A complicated story of revenge, child abduction, a serial killer, and psychological control. The journey starts with The Little Girl with Popsicle and her mysterious disappearance.
There was so much going on in this book...too much really. There are multiple characters whose lives intertwine in various ways. I found this story to be too convoluted to really enjoy. The most significant theme throughout the story is that of mental illness and how abused children handle their trauma in order to survive. I was not a fan of this story, the prose, and the flow of the story. I found finishing the story a chore and had to force myself to do so. If you like a psychological thriller that will have you wondering where the story is going, then this is a read for you.
