    • I really liked this book. It was one of the most realistic books I felt I have read in a long time. It actually felt like I was in the story and I was getting a little too involved and had to slow down so I wouldn't give myself nightmares. The killer in the book I felt was guilty since day 1 however he has the power over all of the town because everyone who witnessed the crime are either too scared to testify or dead.


    • Won my copy of this in a giveaway here on , and am so glad I did. This book was one of the most enjoyable reads I have come across in a long time. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's considering reading it!
