Sometimes you just need to read a book about a creepy real monster like Hannibal Lector. I find it keeps things in perspective for me! Willett’s writing will make your skin crawl, but you won’t be able to stop reading until you know the whole story.
Since Lucy’s parents died, her brother has made a point to be with her on her birthday. No matter what he was doing, he never missed a birthday. Sure, they both are living their own lives and do not necessarily stay in close touch, but a birthday was never missed; until now. Using her training as a journalist, Lucy decides to search for her brother. The last contact Lucy received was a text with a photo of him in front of an unusual statue. Beginning with discovering that the statue is in the small town of Night Town, Lucy packs a bag and sets out to find Tim. Arriving in Night Town Lucy feels an immediate chill, that is not just the temperature. She runs into a drifter named Damen who is also looking for a missing person, so the two decide to work together.
I am not a fan of spoiling a good read, so I am going to leave you with a few general comments. This is a genuine page-turner, filled with suspense and fear. Willet does an excellent job of weaving a tale of depravity that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
