At seventeen, Linn is viciously raped within her own isolated home. Nineteen years later, Linn is finally seeking her rapist by moving back to that, now vacant, house. Initially, her attacker was thought to be a stranger. However, Linn’s memory of that night is slowly returning. Thanks to a special doorbell ring, she knows her rapist must have been a close friend or neighbor. So begins the new thriller, Flowers for the Dead.
The sense of dread is palpable throughout the shivery tale. Linn is an emotionally fragile character taking on a task well beyond her skill set. This is her first time really out in the world since the incident. Her husband, Oliver, has always taken care of everything. But she has to do this task alone.
The swiftly changing point-of-views makes for a twisty and slightly off-balance tale. However, it is worth whatever confusion you may have when you get to the slam-bam and exciting conclusion. Wow, I loved the perfect ending where all the threads come together into a beautifully woven plot. 4 stars for Flowers for the Dead!
