HOLY SHITERRIFIC Y'ALL

First...allow me to stand and do a slow clap for Alessandra Torre.

πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘

I just THOUGHT I was an Alessandra Torre fan before this book, however, after reading this offering, I am now a SUPERFAN.

This is an utterly captivating storyline unlike any I have read before. JFC I don't even know how to capture the words I need to review this book.

The main character, Helena, is so unlikable but fuck dammit is she ever relatable. Torre has so thoroughly fleshed out this unsympathetic character that I was actually sobbing for her by the end.

And the tension...omfuck the tension builds at such a deliciously slow pace that it is nearly unbearable at times.

I completely devoured every cuticle on my right hand while reading this book. Idk why!! I didn't even realize I was doing it until I turned the last page with fingers so friggin sore and swollen they look like I stuck my fingers into a garbage disposal.

Please, please Alessandra, I implore you to write more psychological suspense books. You have nailed it with this book.
