to build. As Dr. Ellen Quinn delves deep into the autopsy of Jane more secrets
come to light & the case takes a dark turn when Jane finds the body of a
missing teen boy many felt were responsible for Annalise’s disappearance.
Writing, Story & Characters
The writing was descriptive and easy to read. I also like
the story and I remember reading somewhere that this book was loosely taken
from an actual unsolved case in Canada. The characters are very well written
and believable, especially Jane & Dr. Ellen Quinn. Angela the reporter
almost reminded me of Gale Weathers from the Scream movies. The Shoreview Six
with the pledge, it almost gave a I Know What You Did Last Summer vibe though
much darker. I also felt the ending gave a great twist that you didn’t see coming.
I don’t have much to criticize, only that there was one loose end with one of the
Shoreview Six that I felt needed clearing up but other than that I enjoyed the
Overall if you enjoy mystery books you will enjoy this one.
