I can say that this book had my attention from the beginning. Can you imagine being a young girl and finding out your father is a serial killer. Naomi was about to turn 12 in a few days. She was excited because she had asked her parents for a bike. Late one night her dad went outside and she thought that maybe he was putting together her bike. Unfortunately what she found would ruin her life. She followed him to an abandoned cellar. Waiting for him to come out, because she wanted a sneak peek. As he came out she saw something in him that was horrifying. She decided maybe it was a bad idea to see what he was doing when she heard what sounded like sobs. She was strong enough to go down and find Ashley. She helped Ashley to the police station and did what she needed to and turned her dad in. The story then takes you through her life with her family and growing up, keeping all of this hidden deep down inside. Until she met Xander. Now as an adult she is having to go through the horror again. She found a woman’s body. It showed evidence of the same things that her dad’s victims had. It was not as predictable as I thought at first, as I totally had the killer pegged wrong. I love that, that it takes you through turns that keep you guessing.
Now this was a very good read kept my interest, did get a bit slow as she was growing up but I know it’s because the author was working back up to the suspense. Definitely a very well written book. The character build up was very good. Always a good pick with Nora Roberts.
