Caroline Gillespie is not famous. She’s a nobody. And that’s the way she likes it. Her father, on the other hand — Hank Keeling, the serial killer and occasional cannibal better known as the Pork Chop Killer — has just gone viral. Thanks to a prison guard’s error, a cell phone video of Keeling’s botched execution is quickly becoming an internet sensation.

After watching her father die in all his pixelated glory, Caroline is taken off-guard when Keeling himself shows up at her front door, looking very much not dead. And he has a plan. A plan involving Caroline. A plan Caroline is going to take part in whether she wants to or not. Success means wealth beyond her dreams. Failure means death.

Soon Caroline is whisked away from her bland life to face down killers, gangsters and a well-meaning cop in a hunt for long-lost fortune. Deceit, avarice and unrelenting violence collide in a coming-of-age story like none you’ve ever read.






The title caught my interest while browsing eBook Stage deals and with the interesting synopsis, I downloaded this read for free on Amazon.

Caroline's father was Keeling the Cannibal who was sentenced to death but after his execution video went viral, he showed up to Caroline to ask for her help. Together they need to uncover the clues to locate the hidden million dollars. As she try to help Keeling find the money, the more danger she was in..... the detective she trusted, a gang called Trinities and even from Keeling.

The characters, and the plot were interesting and intriguing. A suspense read full with lies, secrets, deceit and conspiracy. As I got deeper into the story and as more revelation has been revealed, I was kept thinking if the characters were really who they are.

The ending wasn't what I expected tho. With the truths revealed, I was expecting Caroline would do something to clear the name of her father and there was no explanation of the significance of the silver dollar.

A recommended read especially for those into suspense genre.
