Vickie has always lived a quiet, ordinary life in an equally quiet and ordinary small town. Yet one fateful night a child turns up dead in the woods behind her house in a ritualistic slaughter. Vickie and her family are suddenly thrown into a national spotlight. But as the investigation unfolds, she begins to realize her family isn’t so ordinary after all. Evil is inching closer to those she holds dear and Vickie isn’t sure who she can ultimately trust.
Ummm wow! I did not see that coming. Not the way I thought that was going to go. . This book is full of surprises and sick twisted things. I was definitely shocked 😳.
In this book Vickie is a small town girl. She has a twin brother Travis, another brother Kevin, her mom, pops, papa and Uncle Jerry all living in a large property. Her family is pulled into a murder investigation of the little girl next door, named Michelle. When all the evidence seems to point back at the family, Vickie tries to find out the truth. Things just get weirder and weirder Vickie just doesn’t know what to do or who to trust. Even her own family has many secrets and lies popping up everywhere. Will the killer be caught before someone else dies? The clock is ticking and time is running out before the Ultimate Sacrifice has to be made.
This would make an excellent horror flick. It is twisted and scary, with interesting characters. It will have you on the edge of your seat and keep you guessing till the end. Just when you think you have it all figured out, bam! Something happens and you find out that everything is definitely not what it seems.
