Gone To Ground
by Brandilyn Collins
-From the back cover-
Amaryllis, Missippi, is a scrappy little town of strong backbone and Southern hospitality. A brick-paved Main Street, a park, and a legendary ghost in the local cemetery are all part of its heritage. Everybody knows everybody there, and gossip wafts on the breeze. Its people are friendly, its families tight. On the surface Amaryllis seems much like the flower fir which it's named – bright and fragrant.
But the Amaryllis flower is poisonous.
In the past three years five unsolved murders have occurred within the town. All the victims were women, and all were killed in a similar fashion in their homes. And two nights ago – a sixth murder.
Clearly a killer lives among the good citizens of Amaryllis. Now three terrified women are sure they know who he is – someone they love. None is aware of the others' suspicions. And each must make the heartrending choice to bring the killer down.
But each woman suspects a different man.
A killer is closer than they think...
This Book received a 4.5 Bark rating.
I think Gone To Ground is my new favorite of her books. From the totally dramatic cover featuring an amaryllis flower dripping blood on the version I read to the very last page Brandilyn Collins takes readers on a thrilling and definitely spine-tingling ride. I have never finished one of her books as fast as I did Gone To Ground. While still as intense Gone To Ground focuses less on the actual murders than some of Brandilyn's other books and more on the psychological effects of a serial killer on a small town, and on the three women who are convinced they know – and are close to – the killer.
I truly enjoyed every bit of this book and trying to figure out the killer before he strikes again, which I did manage to do. Gone To Ground is great read with plenty of twists and turns that Brandilyn Collins fans are sure to love.
