4/5
Wow, this book was a crazy ride. So much happens. Claire's husband, Paul, is murdered right in front of her. She soon starts finding out secrets about her husband that he has kept hidden for years. The deeper she digs, the more secrets she finds. This book has a crazy amount of WTF?! moments. Every new twist had me thinking how unbelievable everything was. At the same time, I was absolutely intrigued and did not want to stop reading. The story was amazing and so well written. I just loved it. There is some very graphic violence in this book. I was a little surprised by how graphic. Even with the violence, I really enjoyed this book.

Such a dark evil story... but so well-written! Kudos to Ms. Slaughter.

3/5
Being a cozy murder kind of reader, I didn't much care for the gore and torture in this book. It's one thing to create suspense - and Slaughter does this well - but to emphasize the torture is really not my cup of tea. The author is certainly good at her craft but this novel is just not one I will recommend.
