Wow, what a story!
Winscott & Associates is one of the largest and most successful accounting firms in Arizona. Five years ago the partners have voted and have chosen Olin as a managing partner. This is probably the biggest mistake they've made in their lives...a mistake that will shatter their comfortable positions at the Firm and maybe even endanger their reputation and lives!
Olin is cruel, lying, arrogant bastard..but he's always been that way. Everyone at the Firm is familiar with the fact he is manipulating people, especially women, offering promotions and a partnership in exchange for sex. Five years ago, just prior to settling as a managing partner, he found the "wrong" victim - Audra Tanner.
Cruel, powerful, rich, man with insatiable libidos, mistresses, ex-wife's, rape, murder..this story has it all!
Five years ago Audra was raped by Olin...
Five years ago they've all heard her screams but neither of them helped her.
Five years she waited for the right moment to destroy "The Elite" and this time they are all going to pay!
While reading the blurb of the book I assumed this story will be centered around Audra, but I must admit I was tricked (in a good way of course). Ashley Fontainne created a complex thriller with many interwoven stories. Each of her characters tells a story explaining their relationship with Olin, revealing a bit of Olin's nasty and cruel nature. I must admit I was fascinated by this!
Ashley created a profound thriller that will grab you from the very first page! I don't think I ever hated a book character that much in my life, but it's not because Olin was not well developed...on the contrary, he feels too real and it seems all evil is placed in him. I really love Ashley's writing style and her knowledge in human psychology. This sure is a book that deserves to be made into a TV series or a movie. Speaking of movies I already thought which actor could play Olin..
If you're looking for a fast paced read, with action/mystery/thriller elements, this is the PERFECT read for you. The author is currently working on the sequel and I am really looking forward to reading it.
Finally I would like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review and for being so kind in offering 2 copies (PAPERBACKS) to my blog readers.
