This book is written in the first person.
It is the 1960’s and Ruby Baker and her best friend Mary leave home and run away to Brighton. Ruby is regularly beaten by her step-father and Mary is married to an abusive and very jealous man – and she is pregnant. And Ruby has a secret that she hopes no one ever finds out. Hitching a ride to Brighton, they show up at Ruby’s cousin Pearl’s apartment unannounced. Their plan it to find jobs and get their own place as soon as possible.
They luck into positions as apprentice hairdressers immediately. They enjoy themselves partying and having a good time, for it is now the 60’s when anything goes.
A strange man begins to follow Ruby around. She is justifiably scared. Then the murders start to occur. The little community of party girls is terrified. A serial killer is on the loose!
This book takes some very interesting twist and turns. It is well written and plotted. The books starts out casual and with just a little tension, but as the story builds, so does the suspense. This is my first Daisy White novel, but I immediately went to Amazon to check out her other works. Well done, Ms. White!
I want to thank NetGalley and Joffe Books for forwarding to me a copy of this book to read.
Obtaining jobs at a beauty shop, they fall in with a fun bunch of people. This is the 60s and almost anything goes. Ruby and Mary are enjoying their freedom ... until ....
Someone is watching Ruby. Mary is afraid it is her husband. Ruby is afraid it's her stepfather. So who is this? And does he know her secret?
When Ruby finds the body of someone she knows, she fears for her own life. The stranger who watches her has not come out of the shadows. And then someone disappears who is very close to Ruby. Is the stranger a murderer? There is talk about sacrifices and the occult. Is Ruby the target?
This was a fast, easy read filled with colorful characters. It started a little slow for me, but it didn't take long before I was hooked into the story. I didn't find it as much suspenseful as I did mysterious. And I do like mysteries. There are several suspects so I couldn't guess the ending ... and it was quite a surprise! All in all, a compelling and enjoyable read.
Many thanks to the author / Joffee Books / Netgalley for the advance digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
