Flynn writes well, but really seems to relish the darker subject matter. I didn't care for the protagonist. She is weak and hard to empathize with despite the tragedy in her life but it picks up speed in the second half and has a satisfying ending. Read full review

Not terrible, but not terribly gripping either. It is hard to be invested in a mystery/thriller when you don't really care about the main character, secondary characters, or minor characters. Still, you can sit down and plow through it in an evening. Read full review
