Loved this so much. I was super thrilled to see a blurb from Mo Hayder (one of my favorite crime-thriller writers) on the cover. Once I finished the novel, I saw that Hayder was also Medina’s mentor, which makes perfect sense considering they are similar enough in their dark and captivating storytelling abilities. I would also compare this favorably to Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, with the strong yet previously broken female lead. This is my favorite kind of crime fiction, with full immersion in the setting and unsettling looks into the minds of a variety of characters. Not for the squeamish. Can not wait to see more from K.T. Medina.
