It's quite unusual for a kindle freebie from an unknown author to be this good. Unusual and awesome, this is the sort of thing that justifies trying out plethora of new authors on kindle, this is the sort of story one hopes to find. Home for disturbed youth turned into a brutal murderous coven stirred into action by an arrival of the new girl. Can the institution's strict house mother and her most dependable worker survive the night. That's basically the plot summary, a dark brutal psychological thriller. The real strength here is in writing, the suspense is edge of the seat, the violence and danger practically palpable, but more importantly and most impressively Winn (male) manages to create some of the most nuanced, compelling and authentic female characters I've read recently, and I read a lot. Kudos to the author. This was a most auspicious introduction to a new author. Highly recommended.
