This book is too well written. It scared me. Maybe I was feeling vulnerable, because books just don't scare me...but this one did. My thoughts while listening were about the author, "this woman knows evil...I wonder how she understands it so well." Like the pragmatically minded Detective, Jane, I don't believe in monsters separate from the blackness found in the human heart. I believe that some people choose evil as a way of life. Others facilitate it by doing nothing. The author's suggestion of a separate race of demons kept me sane during the reading; it allowed me to finish the book, providing the distance I needed between the evil described and my own heart. I strive not to choose evil, but I have felt its influence in my life, suffered from its full effects, and, yes, evil scares me. I cling to the good.
