Unholy Hunger by Heather James
This is a fascinating story about a mother's demand for vengeance after her child is murdered. Evelyn Barrett had a great life, with a wonderful husband, beautiful daughter, and a job she loved as an attorney. That's all shattered when her daughter dies and she becomes obsessed with finding and punishing the man who did this. When she develops an ability to sniff out evil, will she listen to her conscience or take it too far?
There are a lot of facets to this story, from grief to the extremes Evelyn goes to find justice, to the odd ability that helps her discover the truth. This is a tough subject matter, but not graphic. The emotions were believable and I could see a parent reacting as Evelyn did. Evelyn frustrated me at times, but I admired her, too. This is a well-written, unique story that will keep you riveted!
I received this book free from Kregel Publications in exchange for an honest review.
