I didn’t know anything about this book when I downloaded it on Audible. It started sounding like it was going to be a YA version of Dark Waters, then warped into a missing persons, then into some dark twisted paedophile ring story. That sounds ridiculous I know. But that’s genuinely what it was like. High school bitchiness and boy crushes turned completely sinister.
Abby Williams had a rough time at high school living in small town Barrens, Indiana, so she escaped to Chicago to become a lawyer at the first possible moment. However, she follows an environmental complaint back to Barrens ten years after leaving. But her investigation into dirty water develops into something much worse.
The premise of this story was really good. And totally believable that big corporations have these dark secrets. However, the way it was written was terrible. It bounced around all over the place and there were just too many ideas. Don’t get me wrong I finished it and I wanted to know how it ended but I didn’t particularly enjoy much of it.
I’d probably give it 2.5/5 just because I did finish it and I was interested to find out how it would end. But it’s not a book I would probably recommend to people.
