The cliche "could not put this book down" gets thrown around a lot in reviews, but I...literally could not put this book down and finished it in less than 24 hours. I devoured this book with the same breakneck pace in which the plot unfurled. Often thrillers make a trade between characterization versus pacing, but I felt this novel kept a perfect balance of making the characters intriguing enough to be invested in without sacrificing pacing. The generosity and humanity with which she depicts characters many would find unlikeable/unrelatable is compelling as we watch the characters grapple over the control of their own growth/healing. The exploration of toxic masculinity was fascinating as this novel shows us that hatred of women is hidden behind many different masks.
