“Another dark and gruesome novel from newcomer Flynn, this one explores the life of the only survivor of a gruesome family murder. Libby was only 7 when her brother allegedly slew her mother and two sisters with an ax. He's been jailed ever since based on Libby's testimony. Now Libby is approching 30 and starting to question her childlike remembrance of this event.
Flynn again keeps the reader flying through the pages, but one can't halp wondering what lives in this author's mind to be able to creat such dark novels? Perhaps we should all be grateful that her fantasies play out only on the pages of her books! I remember feeling this way about Stephen King thirty years ago...”
