An innocent family are the latest victims of a grisly series of hideous sacrificial killings that no one understands, and no one can stop. Nobody lives to tell of the unimaginable carnage. Only the blood-stained walls bear witness.

While its easy to get lost in the procedural aspect of Thomas Harris' story and characters, the real meat of the story begins when Harris dives into the emotional trauma and stunting of a child. Really asking us if Nature or Nurture is to blame.

As much as I loved A.M. Arthur's first book and devoured it in literally a day, this was the story I was excited about reading. It was obviously going to be a major story from the second you read Tristan going to Big Dicks and his terrible experience there. What wasn't obvious was how emotional that relationship was going to be and its effects on Shane and Noel. This book gave me so much anxiety (in a good way) and kept me on the edge of my seat so many times. I loved this story and I'm happy it exists.

Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in - not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel's relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he's a city boy through and through, and it's clear that this small town is one more place he won't fit in.

Story was fun and imaginative and I was hoping for so much to come from the story. The sex was very descriptive and erotic without feeling fake or "too much". The narrator was great. My one'll problem was some jump edits here and there but not enough to distract from the performance or the story.
