Master of the craft that she is, JD takes you on a journey, but the mystery, the terror, and the way she makes you root for the protagonist, even though you haven't figured him out, is what drives this horrific novel. She skillfully adds in the back-story a little at a time, never allowing the action and suspense to waver. This is the way a practiced and talented author writes. Too many writers go on and on, describing every little thing, until you can't take it anymore. JD gets into the head of her main character and describes his pain, his angst. There is plenty of description, but it's woven into the fabric of the story and not pushed at you all at once.
She presents a brutal tale of psychological horror tearing away at not only our hero but you as well, because you become one with the story and feel everything that happens to this young man. Every bit of pain suffered by him attacks your mind, your soul. I guarantee that you will squirm in your chair when you read this thriller.
As far as I'm concerned, this is is JD's best tale to date. This is pure horror, coming at you from a true master at the craft.
