Book Title: "Burned" Author: Thomas Enger Published By: Atria Books Age Recommended: 18 + Reviewed By: Kitty Bullard Raven Rating: 5
Review: A mystery of horrific intensity, “Burned” grabs you from the first page and refuses to let go. When a young woman is found buried in the earth from her waist down and has been the victim of a ritualistic stoning, Henning Juul is called in to investigate. The plot continues to thicken as he uncovers what is suspected to be a religious act only to find out it goes much deeper. This novel has it all, from struggles with racism, to the secret truth you’ll be shocked to learn what is really going on and who the ultimate culprit is.
I definitely recommend this novel, though a word of warning; it does contain some dark and horrific conscious imagery.
