Eeny Meeny by M. J. Arlidge

This is a disturbing book.  Don't read it if you have a weak stomach or scare easily.  Watch out for the twisted mind games being played.  And prepare for a final confrontation that can only have one outcome:  BAD.

Penguin Group and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 2nd, so you'll be able to grab a copy then.

Someone is putting a couple of people in impossible situations.  An empty swimming pool that has long been abandoned and is too deep to escape; a coal silo; or any place that has long been vacant and has a trap no one can escape from.  They have a gun and a phone with message that tells them there is one way out.  One must kill the other and then they will be released. It matters not what walk of life you come from or how you are related to the other person. 

The victims are sometimes injured, all of them emotionally wrung out, and they are left until one dies.  Then the other one is set free; at least from the trap they were in.  They never escape the torture in their mind.

What you read is horrible but you keep reading to find out what happens.  You know the cop isn't going to give up until she finds the killer.  Some people around her get left on the wayside while this hunt goes on but she refuses to give up.

Everybody touched by this disaster is a mess.  It will be some time until people recover from being a victim.  That includes the cop.  An event from years ago that she thought she'd left behind hit her in the face and now she has to figure out how to move on, too.

This is not a book you will forget.
