“The kind that knew even back then that the dark was a whole other world. That it soaked up the daylight one like a biscuit dipped in coffee.”
15 bodies. 15 bloodless bodies. Strewn across four states. Fifteen year old Marie Catherine Hale is taken from the last crime scene covered in blood and she is the only link the law has to discover who’s really been killing these people. She agrees to tell her story to the sheriff’s son, Michael, a boy around her age who wants to be a journalist. He has no idea what he’s getting into sitting with this mysterious young girl. She weaves a tale that is a little fact and a little fiction… or is it?
The story is told in that YA way where adults are out of touch and untrustworthy. Not sure how much of it is really a mystery, I’d classify this more as horror. I enjoyed it, I wanted a little more meat in the end but it was a good read for spooky season. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
