If you could sum up Desecration in three words, what would they be?

Gruesome. Disturbing. Riveting.

Any additional comments?

I was not a fan of thrillers. Honestly I had never even read one. So I didn't really know what to expect. However, I had been a follower of the author and her podcast and was curious to check out her work. My opinion? It was good! Gruesome and revolting at times but good. If you can't handle hearing about decaying flesh and deformed cadavers floating in specimen jars... well then you might want to pass. But if you think you can handle that and are one that enjoys an almost procedural style story filled with mystery, murder, and a touch of romance then definitely check this out. You'll be revolted and yet you won't want to stop! Kudos to J.F. Penn for weaving an excellent tale!
