I had questions when I finished Chance, and they were all answered in this book, most of them right in the beginning. I was thrilled to get the answers, but then more questions popped up. I was drawn into this book because I needed to know the answers.
Cassie, Laura, and Frank return in this book. Maria, a new character, was fantastic! I was rooting for her. Stella, from the title, and her parents were a big surprise.
The events in this book are disturbing. It upset me deeply that women were being subjugated, objectified, manipulated, and abused. And when it was suggested that the books women read indicate that's what they want in their lives, I was angry! Are you kidding me?!
In the first book, we saw the tip of the iceberg with hints of what was below. In this book, the iceberg is completely revealed and crushed.
I wish there had been less of a jump forward in years. I would have liked to have read about Cassie between Chance and before Circle. Then we might have seen more of Aaron and Laura.
In Circle the events take place 7 years after Chance. Cassie is on the brink of adulthood, which means she can put the past into perspective, and also sees any future visions in a different way.
Her visions are similar to seizures and Cassie often becomes part of the person or the evil she can see. She experiences the events as if she is there, often through the eyes of the perpetrators.
If you have read Chance you will be aware of the hidden society of sexual deviants run by high powered and well-known men in society.
Dudgeon likes to mix his fictional with the stark reality of abuse, sexual exploitation, domestic violence and rape. In Stella’s case he makes the case for the thin line between coercion and consent. When the line is crossed both the victims and outsiders have trouble recognising the difference between abuse and actual true consent. This is also sometimes the case for the perpetrators.
Maybe Dudgeon will let Cassie and Frank become a more permanent fixture, perhaps a psychic-detective combo? Hint, hint.

Cassie is either blessed or cursed. She has visions and sees things in the future. She can see into peoples' minds. Unfortunately what she usually sees are horrific scenes.
Detective Frank Simmons is suspended from his job. His supervisors claim that he is suffering from growing paranoia. He's seeing a spike in crimes against women and he believes there are cops involved.
While he's on leave, he gets a request from the family of a young woman who has gone missing. Taking Cassie with him while he investigates, they will face more danger than they've ever seen or known. They find themselves involved in the CIRCLE .. a wide-spread network of sadistic human beings.
Bringing this organization to a halt is going to take every bit of fortitude they have. They desperately need help ... but who can they trust?
This was an excellent read for me! Cassie is a terrific character ... she is multi-layered....willing to face whatever comes at her. Frank is a great foil for Cassie. He's older and looks at Cassie as a father would. He's desperate for her help, but hates using her.
This was extremely well-written. The tension builds and builds until an explosive ending. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves mystery, crime thrillers, with a little paranormal thrown in.
Many thanks to the author who furnished a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. I also offer my apologies for taking so long to read this one.
