Review: Freak by Jennifer Hillier

Sheila Yow is back again as Abby Maddox insists on seeing her from prison.  A fresh set of murders are occurring and the words 'Free Abby Maddox' are carved into their bodies.  The man whose throat Abby Slit, Jerry Isaac, is called in to consult on the case.  Abby continues to manipulate them and others suspensefully building up to a violent abduction and more twists.  Yet, once again, the story is not over and we know that this rough road for Sheila can get worse.

When I read the first book in this series, I loved it - and this was no different.  The characters are smart and survivors.  The evil of the psychopathic charters is palpable.  The story conveys an intensity that kept me turning the pages.  There is always a sense that there is more going on than the characters are aware of, which leads to a lot of guessing fun.

--BUT--

Cliffhangers drive me nuts!
