Wow the continuation of DI Stratton is such a read. Very dark and disturbing and touches on so many strong emotional issues.
I was shocked and with a title like this I assumed that it would be a lot easier to peice together what I believed was happening
This book while not as strong for me as the first still had such depth to it and I really like helena and Andy relationship it shows they still have such a long way to go but are showing what it means to be a partner.
I am really enjoying the warped nuances of this series as it always seems that there are issues. This book was no different dealing with psychological aspects of neglect or abuse even.
This felt very realistic almost too close to real life and what would or could or even has happened. Noone knows what goes through the mind of people and this book just shows it perfectly.
