At nine years old, Tessa and Callie were the prime witnesses in the trial of a serial killer (the Ohio River Monster). Now a teenager, Tessa returns to her hometown to confront her past and find out the truth.
This book was just okay for me. I didn’t care for any of the characters and I didn’t enjoy the narration. The main plot was okay, but the end felt contrived and unbelievable. The subplot involving Tessa’s mother and sister was unnecessary and distracting.
Bottom line: Take out the subplot, make the characters a bit likable or relatable, and this story would be better. As it is, there are better thrillers to spend your time on.
