When I picked up this book I was intrigued by the question, “How far would you go to get justice?” I suppose that the answer is, it depends on the person and the crime. In The Collective by Alison Gaylin, we follow Camille Gardner, an angry and grieving mother of a slain daughter, as she is given the opportunity to answer that very question.
After her daughter’s death, Camille joins an online support group that helps her vent her anger and frustrations. As time passes, she is invited to join a more secretive support group on the dark web, a group that shares ideas for revenge.
This book has a slow burn, but once it gets started it’s a thrilling ride. And the plot twist … I thought I saw it coming, but not in the way it played out! If you’re looking for a quick read, are a fan of true crime or enjoy a good audiobook, I highly recommend this title.
