This is the best book I’ve read all year. Hands down. My jaw hit the floor. And it is well rounded with a compelling plot and a character you just want to know more about.

Camille is still grieving five years after her daughter’s death. She was taken too soon and the suspected murderer gets off and continues to live his privileged life. You just become so immersed in her pain. I could feel the grief and even shed a tear or two in the early part of the book. Then she is contacted by the collective and they offer a way for justice. She isn’t sure if it is real or a game, but it offers enough of a distraction that she is willing to play along. And then the book gets really interesting.

It’s a unique take on the genre. It is t a pulse pending thriller, but has little mysteries running through it. And you get to know so much about Camille and are really rooting for her to find peace. And as I read, I really thought about justice and what it’s cost really is.

I don’t want to go any further for fear of spoiling anything, but if you are a fan of mystery/suspense/thrillers, you need to add this to your TBR list.
