Suspenseful. I'll give it that. I kept turning the pages and was irritated when interrupted while reading.
The romantic scenes thrown in between the main character and a temporary co-case worker were, to say the least, no Fifty Shades of Grey (I haven't read it but excerpts are everywhere), but I hate those risque scenes and usually skip past them. In this book's case, I didn't understand half of the euphemisms used and after unsuccessful attempts to work it out with my husband, even tried to Google what he was talking about.
I'm not exactly a prude, but "spurring her down to the quarter pole", left me blank. I can assume based on the scene what it means, but the exact meaning...?
Despite these, thankfully brief and vague encounters, the plot was socially disturbing, striking a chord that fascinated the part of me that leans to the macabre.
It's a good read, flows well, and I may have to search some bargain bins for other Virgil Flowers novels.
I'd say worth the buy if looking into it!
