This book held tons of intrigue and intensity. The view inside the sinister mob activity from the perspective of an outsider was fascinating, all the more so as the heroine slides deeper into the darkness of their world and eventually turns their game toward saving herself from a darkness even closer to home. If you like a good mob story, check this one out! This woman's journey through hell and back is remarkable!
This is a dramatic, suspenseful tale of a naive 'good girl' who fell in love with, and married, the wrong man. She wanted a family and a house and a pleasant, quiet life. What she got instead, was an underworld-connected husband, a steady diet of psychological abuse, and an unbearable level of stress, that drove her into having a risky affair......with a cop!
The author's honest, candid writing style makes it an entertaining page turner. Carla's story is one of triumph, of overcoming obstacles. It served as inspiration to me, to rise up and meet the challenges in my own life.
My definition of a good read, is one that is so engrossing, that I lose track of time. This was a good read!
