The Collective: A Novel | Alison Gaylin
The USA Today bestselling and Edgar Awardwinning author of Never Look Back and If I Die Tonight plumbs the dark side of justice and the depths of diabolical revenge in this propulsive novel of psychological suspense that melds the driving narrative of Then She Was Gone with the breathtaking twists of The Chain and the violent fury of Kill Bill. Alison Gaylins The Collective is an astonishing feat. In the tradition of Ira Levins unforgettable social thrillers (Rosemarys Baby, Stepford Wives), its a nerve-shredding, emotionally harrowing ride that also speaks volumes about our current moment, the dangers of our digital world, the potency of female rage. Dont miss it. Megan Abbott Just how far will a grieving mother go to right a tragic wrong? Camille Gardener is a grievingand angrymother who, five years after her daughters death, is still obsessed with the privileged young man she believes to be responsible. When her rash actions draw the attention of a secret group of womenthe collective Camille is drawn into a dark web where these mothers share their wildly different stories of loss as well as their desire for justice in a world where privilege denies accountability. Fueled by mutual rage, the collective members devise and act out retribution fantasies via precise, anonymous, highly coordinated revenge killings. As Camille struggles to comprehend whether this is a role-playing exercise or terrifying reality, she must decide if these women are truly avenging angels or monsters. Becoming more deeply enmeshed in the group, Camille learns truths about the collectiveand about herselfthat she may not be able to survive

Even if not distracted while reading this story, I would not have seen this ending coming! Why the distraction, you ask!? Reading about Camille pulled into the Collective on the dark web, I couldn‘t help but consider the many IRL folk disenfranchised for countless reasons and finding safety and power within the vast numbers in their conspiracy groups. But as Gaylin describes, safety and power do not equal insight.

Camille‘s daughter is murdered in a manner ripped from the headlines. Her grief is consuming her, she loses her therapist & cliche positivity from online support groups aren‘t helping …until she joins a “sisterhood” on the dark web. She appreciates a being able to voice her true thoughts, until it becomes more than just venting.

Twisty. Very dark exploration of grief & vengeance.

1 more week to finish all the Christmas prezzies 🌟🦋

I‘m trying to catch up on my #BOTMBacklog to get that extra challenge prize- and I flew through this one! Camille‘s grief over her daughter‘s death hasn‘t ebbed in five years- but after a business card comes her way, she may have found just the right outlet for her rage- or should she be a little concerned about this new group of women? A pageturner with surprises big and and small to the plot, I couldn‘t put it down!

OutsmartYourShelf
The Collective: A Novel | Alison Gaylin

After a slow first couple of chapters, it's a fast-paced read which effortlessly kept my attention throughout the rest of the book. The book posits some interesting questions for the main character - how far would you go to see that someone who killed a loved one faced punishment if the law failed to? Is there a line you wouldn't cross or a point where you would feel that things had gone far enough?

(Continued in comments)

OutsmartYourShelf felt that Luke (the recipient of Emily's heart through organ donation) & his girlfriend were kind of superfluous characters who didn't really add much to the story, & for me, the ending was a little disappointing. Overall though I rate 4🌟 for a great thriller with an interesting premise

My thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Orion Publishing Group, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

I kind of wish it was a full length novel because there's a really good premise here which didn't work for me in 30 pages but I think it would in 300.

When a celebrity couple's daughter goes missing, the world goes into a spin.

I like the characters a lot, I think I just needed more from this as I'm left unsatisfied.

This is part of the Hush collection.

At the time of posting this collection is available on Kindle Unlimited.

I honestly didn‘t expect so many plot twists at the end but holy guacamole the last one was a doozy. This book had me guessing until the last pages!

Camille‘s daughter died three years ago of hypothermia after being left in the cold by her rapist. Camille continues to carry hatred for him and finds a group of like-minded, revenge-focused women. She goes down a rabbit hole that becomes more and more sinister. This is a fun thriller with a real bang at the end. I really enjoyed it!

4⭐

A decently written thriller with a decidedly different plotline that kept my interest throughout. The story centers around revenge-filled angry mama's and brings into question; does someone who brought about the death of your child deserve to die, too? Overall, a worthwhile listen and the twist at the end was definitely something.

Went through this one quickly! A woman who‘s lost her daughter from a privileged young man joins an online group that exacts revenge on those who have murdered their children. This was well paced & you cared for the lead as she navigates this group & it had a surprising ending. Would make a great movie. I would read more from Gaylin. Might check out some of her previous books. I recommend this one.

Pretty good psychological thriller! Entertaining on audio. The narrator did a really good job.

The book is about a secret group of mothers that join forces. Each woman has suffered through the agony of the death of their children. They come together to take revenge on the people who are at fault for their deaths. There is some twists as the story progresses and you learn there is more to this group of women than meets the eye.

This is a dark thriller that kept me both uneasy and intrigued. The Collective is a group of women who connect anonymously over the dark web seeking justice for people who killed their children but didn‘t receive proper punishment. Camille has been grieving her daughter‘s death for 5 years while consumed with anger over the lack of punishment for her killer. She finds a new sense of purpose with The Collective.

The ending was good.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A mother, driven by grief, is sought out by, and subsequently joins, a group of like women. It‘s precisely the support and vigilante outlet she needs, until it‘s goes WAY too far. I can‘t say anything else, but damn, this was mesmerizing! I‘d somehow never read Alison Gaylin, but I‘ve already jumped into her backlist. There‘s nothing better than discovering a new-to-you author. Thank you, #allthebooks podcast for the rec!

An original and chilling thriller steeped in the powerful collective rage of grieving women. At one point, the leader says that monsters aren‘t evil; they unapologetically fight back against evil inflicted upon them. But what is the line between justice and revenge, and who has the right to decide? It‘s a twisty white-knuckle ride that also gives you a lot to think about! #BOTM
