I kept trying to guess what the problem was, and only got half the story. Not that it was so bazaar you wouldn’t have gotten it, just that it was so twisting it kept you guessing. This story is wonderfully dark. The characters are magnificently drawn. If you love stories that show not only the darker side of human nature and are just overall dark, but good, you will love this story!
