Didn‘t enjoy this one as much as the author‘s The Burning Girls. Found this dull & wholly depressing, convoluted plot + ending made it worse. Loose plot points, not much thrill/suspense. caveat: seems to be a lot of Stephen King references. Liked dual timeline / flashback storytelling, favored the 1986 childhood timeline. Content warnings should be advised, this is packed with graphic stuff. Overall, not recommended, others by author much better.
