Dark, unique, a really fresh take on the psychological thriller. It's totally different than anything I've read recently. The characters are all super complex and interesting. I especially loved Sean. I found myself liking him, even thinking he's kind of sexy, and empathizing for him, and just being right there with him, and then he'd do something and I'd remember that he's a murderer. It was like being inside someone's head and realizing it all makes sense to them in there. I can't wait to see what this author comes up with next!

1986. Meet Sean. He's been released from psychiatric prison, but he's afraid to mingle with society. He's afraid of what he might do. He especially is afraid to date. So he spends all his time at a local theme park, where he draws people in his sketchbooks and lives in a haze of antipsychotic medication. Meet Annabelle. She's at the theme park to scatter her grandmother's ashes because her grandma loved this place. She and Sean meet, and she likes him. He's different. She went to premed in San Francisco, which is where he's from, and they strike up a conversation. They have one day together, and at the end of it, she'd kidnapped. Sean sees this happen. He hears her screaming. But when the cops meet him and hear his story, they can only think one thing: This guy did it, and he's completely out of his mind on meds, and he's an actual real life serial killer. They start closing in on Sean, and he's trying to figure out what actually happened to Annabelle. His mom is shady, the cops are shady, and everyone he meets along the way seems shady. Honestly by the halfway point, I thought any one of these people could have done it. And then the ending. I promise you, whatever you were expecting, let it go. This is a book where we're going to be fighting about the ending for a WHILE. Personally, I feel like I see so much of the same thing over and over again, and I like to be surprised. I could see why you'd be pissed at the end. You get so in Sean's head, you want something specific for him, and what you get at the end is maybe not what everybody wanted, but if you think about it, it's actually the best thing that could have happened. So 5/5 for a thriller that kept me thinking and guessing and ultimately caught me completely off guard.
