My Rating: 5 Stars
This book was an absolute delight to read! For a first novel, I most say I'm highly impressed.
From the story line, the characters, the pace and the ending, absolutely marvellous and a job very well done indeed!
The story follows three main characters with a troubled past that haunts their present. Sarah, a strong woman with money and estates that struggles with her urges to hurt and kill men; Dr. Karl Gross a renowned psychologist, with a secret that could put an end to his career; and Detective Martin White that keeps a terrible truth from his childhood shared only by his therapist, Dr Gross.
Even though the reader knows who the killer is right from the beginning, the story only gains more power since you can really go in depth into the character of Sarah and her own unique struggles. It's a bit scary even, because she really does try to keep her homicidal instincts under control but in the end, they control her.
The pace of the novel is perfect and the connection between these three characters is perfect. I was afraid of losing myself in between characters but I read through very smoothly. I really got into the plot and the twists in the story came naturally and in the perfect moments.
A great read, one that I highly recommend and I will be waiting for future works from V.R Stone.
