Emily Koll lives in a psychiatric facility being incarcerated for doing something terrible. Her father is a gangster. This is a fact she didn't know until he was stabbed by the daughter of a man Emily's father shot. Emily decided to find this woman, Juliet, who stabbed her father and exact her revenge on her. In order to do this, Emily must take on another persona and befriend Juliet. As the charade continues, Emily finds herself becoming more and more intertwined into Juliet's life- including her love life. The question is always there inderlying everything- what did Emily do to be incarcerated?
This is a superb debut novel and one of the best I have read in quite some time. The author brilliantly achieves a true sense of suspense as we watch Emily move slowly into Juliet's personal life. Characters are realistically rendered and the pacing and length is perfect. In many ways this is more of a literary suspense novel and as such transcends the genre. Highly recommended.
