Although this was a difficult book to read, since the villain is a serial killer of children, most of the deaths are in the past and the focus is on the mother of one of the victims and how she deals with the loss of her son and the fact that the court system lets the murderer go on a technicality. Gayle Wilson is a terrific writer who gets the reader thinking beyond the scope of her writing. Is the law enough or should judges be encouraged to pursue what is right, even when the law is clearly preventing what is right from occurring? If Sarah Patterson had succeeded in killing the man who had tortured and killed her son, should she have been prosecuted? Even though she did not succeed, should she have been arrested for attempted murder? The questions go on and on, well after the book is read.
