by Greg Iles
A dark, disturbing, passionate, and horrific novel of sexual child abuse, violence, killing, suicide, depression, and mystery. This was a well written book, which contains one of the best female characters created by a male author I have ever read. The powerful first person narrative propelled me from the first page to the last with startling speed. The combination of repressed memory, forensic dentistry, incest, and psychology make this a read that is not for everyone because of its unsettling content which is shocking in many parts. Though I don't recommend this book for anyone below sixteen because of its mental imagery, gristly descriptions, and mature subject matter I cannot deny that Greg Iles is one of the most flexible and unique writers of fiction today. The mix of three-dimensional characters, razor fast plot, varied and fascinating narrative, multitude of subjects, and horrible topics make this one of the best thrillers I have ever read not only because it is fast paced but also because it informed, provoked, and disturbed me in a way that only thoughtful and reflective thrillers with depth can be.
