So, here we meet with Rainey Summer Day—god bless her soul for such a ridiculous name. Anyway, she’s basically sex on legs. After one party gone wrong where her friends were pummelled to death leaving only her somehow miraculously survived, she was questioned by the authority to explain her side of the story.
When the interview came to naught, the police called in psychologist, Justin Redding, to help deal with the case. From there, the two start having sessions where she leads Justin through the events of her life full of sex, drugs, and manipulation. As the investigation goes on, Justin finds himself struggling to uncover the truth behind the murder and resist the pull of Rainey’s siren seduction.
Listening to her was difficult, she had a habit of rambling over moments she found uninteresting, but then diving into clear and particularly painful detail regarding the sexual activities she carried on.
There was something very wrong about Rainey, so infuriatingly wrong that I wanted to shake her and slap some sense into her.
She was a tiny bird that had fallen from the nest, so insanely vulnerable and lost that I wondered if she would ever find her way again.
“I was a survivor. I knew that and clung to the belief.”
“Don’t you know that stories are supposed to be told from beginning to end? Jumping around will only confuse things.”
“She was a woman created solely for the purpose of temptation. Everything about her, everything.”
***“Rowan and Rainey forever.”***
