This story starts to take you down one path, then jumps to another, then another.
It kept me entertained. It was more edge of seat toward the end of the book as the two main characters are escaping Russia.
I think my favorite scene was the last one in the story with the boy examining the locket.
No extreme reactions.
Yes, I would recommend this book. The book is an intelligent witty thriller. Why did Ashley Cordova commit suicide? What secrets does her family hold? What is the truth behind her father's notorious films? With humor and horror, Marisha Pessi lets her tale unfold. The books main characters, an unlikely trio allied to find the truth of Ashley's suicide, traverse a dark landscape littered with witchcraft, dangerous films, curses, cancers, and secrets.
Nora, the coat check girl and would be actress, gives the story its heart.
My favorite scene is when our chief detective and investigative reporter makes a journey through Cordova's films via the warehouse and green house on the palatial estate of the filmmaker. It's a nightmare journey. Did it really happen? Draw your own conclusions.
Hopper's revelations about a drowning at a camp for troubled youth.
