"Chilling...this terrific novel is...propelled by an iron-tight plot that becomes increasingly tense." ??New York Times Book Review

"It's a nerve-shredding, emotionally harrowing ride. Don't miss it." ??Megan Abbott, New York Times bestselling author

The USA Today bestselling and Edgar Award??winning author of Never Look Back and If I Die Tonight asks how far a grieving mother will go to right a tragic wrong in this propulsive novel of psychological suspense.

Camille Gardener is a grieving??and angry??mother who, five years after her daughter's death, is still obsessed with the privileged young man she believes to be responsible.

When her rash actions draw the attention of a secret group of women??the collective??

Grief is an endless cycle. ( )

"Boredom dulls your ability to do the right things.."
Camille's daughter was murdered five years ago. She cannot "move on", and doesn't want to. She doesn't want to wait for karma. She believes that revenge will provide "closure". She learns that the desire for revenge can create monsters...
and sometimes, "the monster outlives her creators."

3.5 stars. I predicted a few of the twists but not all of them. ( )

A perfect sort of low stakes beach read. You could read this at the beach or half-drunk or sun-dazed and love it. An easy, accessible thriller that doesn't insult the reader. Well written to boot. ( )

4-4.5 stars.

“When you’ve been through fire you can’t feel that burn every day”

Initial thoughts
I can’t imagine the devastation as a mother to lose your child. Especially at the hands of someone else, who has gotten away scot free? Enter The Collective an online dark web “support group” of mothers that share that same turmoil and grief.
Revenge is what each seeks since the justice system has failed them completely. How far would you go for revenge in your child’s honor?

The ending was tragic and not expected but I loved it! ( )
