Grotesque cover, gory summary, what an enticing book I mused on before picking it up for review. Narrated in the form of diary entries, this story is about a mother and her fight to prove the innocence of one of her twin daughters. A mother always believes the best of her progeny. Joanne, the mother, is on a mission to prove the innocence of her twin daughters who have been accused of killing their own father in a gruesome matter. She strongly believes it was an accident but as enough evidence surfaces it is hard to be convinced. Moreover, it is difficult to identify the killer as they are twins.
I found initial few pages unsettling as the narration was a bit un-conventional with alternating view point and diary entries. For a seasoned thriller reader like me, this book was an absolute treat. The characterization was perfect and each character was well fleshed out. With a strong characterization I pretty much had an idea as to who might be the culprit. In spite of that, the story kept me tenterhooks. The writer skillfully tried to veer the readers away from the secret behind the trick. There is no such thing as coincidence when it comes to psychopaths at play. The writer exploited that fact to maximum. It was interesting to read about how psychopaths are built and how they go about destroying their lives and the lives of others piece by piece. The writing as such is perfect. My only qualm would be with the number of characters. At one point it became difficult to keep track.
MY SAY: Not for the faint hearted.
