It follows Monica, a woman who has lost her husband and unborn child in a car crash which she can't fully remember. Seen through the eyes of Monica, Monica's mother and two other characters, it explores Monica's grief and fall into mental illness.
I went into this book with no real expectations, the blurb promised some supernatural explanation, but as the book progressed, the lines between reality and hallucination were blurred so well, that either explanation could be valid. The characters are vivid and fly off the page and I was gripped by the writing. The solution to the mystery had generous foreshadowing, yet did a good job of pointing me in the wrong direction.
It's dark, gory, unsettling and the writing stayed with me. Hours after I'd read it, I was still thinking about Monica and her situation. I have no real niggles with the text or motivations of the characters. All in all, a highly polished book and a great read.
