This was not a thriller, to me. This was just a mess of -disturbing- issues jam packed into one story and filled with absolute melodrama that made it more nauseating. It didn't feel particularly well written either. Stupid me, I still skimmed through the rest of the book, caught in a state between horror and disgust, then just numbness. It just left me feeling queasy, wanting to scrub my insides, wish-I-never-ever-picked-it-up.
I don't recommend this at all.
