You'd think someone with a BA in
would be a rabid fan of psychological thrillers, but I,
Ladybug Lin, must admit, scary, suspense, murder is just too close to the life I scrambled to escape years ago to want to revisit for entertainment...BUT...once I make a commitment to
read/review a book, no matter how difficult the read is to my personal comfort zone, I carry through.
Sally Royer-Derr is such a book. Every chapter is packed with raw, by the skin-of-your-teeth, panic. Cringe, after cringe, after cringe tightens your belly and your nerve endings as you delve into the warped layers of a mind wrapped in the obsessive need for a woman he can't have, but means to have anyway.
This is EXCELLENT,
spine-tingling...and I LOATHED being unable to put it down. (Why? I think I heard a few of my teeth cracking, I clenched my jaw so tightly...I'm afraid to look...Seriously, who can afford dental work?)
FIVE POWERFUL STARS
HOWEVER...may I say I HATED the ending. Really REALLY
HATED it! My problem I know...but there you have it!
