Trigger warning: rape, abuse
Wow, this was a really twisted and depraved story.
Sixteen year old Angela Wong and Georgina (Geo) Shaw are best friends, attached at the hip, until a man five years their senior comes in between them. Geo and Calvin are inseparable, but it’s a tumultuous relationship. Calvin is abusive and controlling, but Geo can’t let him go, until one night when everything changes and Angela goes missing.
For fourteen years, Angela’s family wondered what happened to her, and only two people know the truth, so when it’s brought to light that Calvin is the Sweetbay Strangler and Geo was a witness the night Angela died, Geo is sent to prison for five years. But, is what’s revealed the full story, or is Calvin and Angela still harboring chilling secrets?
When more bodies are found murdered and dismembered just like Angela’s, police are convinced the Sweetbay Strangler has struck again after escaping prison, and only one person can help solve this case, and she’s not telling the whole story.
This story was definitely sick and twisted, and begs the question, are addictions and behaviors hereditary or learned? There is so many shocking moments in this story you won’t be able to put it down! This novel isn’t for the squeamish as it’s pretty dark and graphic, and I found myself at times wanting to stop reading because of that fact, but the story-line was so compelling I made myself keep reading as I just HAD to know the ending!
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press, the author, and NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
