They get tourists, but no one lives in the Junction but him and Ember. When trespassers come and don’t heed the signs all around, they pay the price. Richard’s a religious man that lives off the land and does as God tells him.
Christopher is a photographer that works for Rolling Stone Magazine and freelances for National Geographic. He comes from a prominent family in NYC and is not a man that can go missing without someone looking for him. When he finds himself chained to a wall in a basement in an old mill town, he believes that he will be rescued soon. Little does he know that his life is about to be ruled by a mad man.
This was an intense, dark, twisted story that had me on the edge of my seat and not wanting to put the book down for anything. A twisted psychological thriller leaving me wanting more and wanting to wait for it. The characters are twisted and crazy. The lengths that some people go to keep their privacy and beliefs protected are crazy at times, to say the least. The cake scene had me wrinkling my nose and saying, “no, just no”! I enjoyed the book, of course I like dark, twisted, demented books, so I enjoyed this book. I give it a 4.5-star review and suggest it to readers that like stories with dark tendencies and way some can lead the lamb to follow them for years before the realize they have been following the wrong person.
