Almost didn't get this book because of the reviews but very glad I did. The subtopic of child molestation can be a slippery slope for any author. I think Mr. Iles did a good job, thoughtful and empathetic. As a child abuse survivor I was drawn to the book. What I got was a good suspense story along with some comfort from the heroine who mirrored some of my own behaviors and thoughts. This may not be the book for everyone and as one reviewer stated it may "turn your stomach" to hear the details. The reality is that many, many children are abused every day by their fathers, uncles, brothers or mothers. They frequently feel alone and helpless. I know this is not a forum for my special cause but would like to say keep your minds and eyes open.
I read every day mostly suspense/mysteries and actually do know the gendre so don't miss a really good read because of the "unpleasant" content.
