Product Details


“Breathtaking . . . Berry writes thrillingly . . . about women raging against a world that protects cruel and careless men. . . . As desperate and consumed as our messy heroine may get in the process, Berry always lets her hold onto her humanity. . . . The writing is rich and moody . . . as blistering as it is lush . . . and the ending is as shocking as it is satisfying.”
