scandalous. Compulsive. Chaotic.

Jason Allen has written an addictive, frantic, fast-paced thriller that will completely suck you in. This book takes you to the Hamptons and shows you the dark side. The book is completely disturbing, highly absorbing, and left me feeling a bit dirty. All the characters in this book are pretty much a HOT mess! It was one of those books that completely consumed me, then when I was done I started thinking, what the **** did I just read? Screwed up people, doing messed up things, and it was oh SO entertaining!

This book really highlighted the Socio economic disparities in the Hamptons between full-time residence and vacationers. The story was told from multiple perspectives and I found this extremely impactful. Cory is a full-time resident who gets his kicks from breaking into the big fancy mansions. Not to steal things, just to mess with the occupants, and for a bit of an escape. Gina his mother works as a housekeeper. She is a recovering alcoholic on the verge of falling off the wagon. Leo is a owner of one of the ritzy mansions a billionaire CEO. He arrives in the Hamptons with his elicit male lover. After a night of drugs and drinking a terrible accident occurs. BUT Leo is not the only witness, Cory had been carrying on his late night activity and saw everything happen, along with Leo’s daughters BFF. What transpires is disturbing, diabolical, and extremely absorbing. This was not the book I was expecting when I pick this up, but I have to admit I enjoyed every single page! 7/10

🎧🎧🎧 I was fortunate enough to have an audio copy of this to review and can I just say BRAVO Angelo DI Loreto! He really added so much to the story. His voice has a bit of an ominous quality to it that just really emphasized the disturbing nature of this book. He is really one of those narrators I could listen to all day!

*** thank you so much to Park Row and Harper audio for my copy of this book ***
