Terrific story! Really, really surprised me in a few places.

Read this book at your own risk, some one-star reviews called it, dark, sick, twisted, etc. But it is good and very well written, so smooth as it transitions from one character to another and tells the story from many different points of view. I liked it and was impressed.

Yes, you will hate the main character; really hate her, and a few others. I mean she works as a volunteer at a suicide hotline and talks people into going ahead and committing suicide. That’s not a spoiler, you know this pretty quickly. But that isn’t the only thing she does that is horrible. The story really has a lot of twists and turns. This book has no limits on doing things immorally, but it never really gets gross or bloody.

Takes place in England.

Strongly recommend, if you don’t mind reading about bad people, who would do anything to get what they want.
