Edit 16 February 2018: I listened to this on audio, and this is what I thought:

I liked Gone Girl so I had high hopes for this one. An emotionally (and physically) scarred journalist returns to her tiny hometown to break the story of a serial killer who targets young girls and steals their teeth. This is disturbing enough, but the whole town is shrouded in the stinking fog of child sexual abuse and smothering denial in the name of manners and propriety. And ultimately, most of the truly troubling bits don't move the story along - they seem more gratuitous than anything. A bunch of terrible people raised by other terrible people who don't have any idea how not to be terrible. This by itself isn't much different from Gone Girl, but unlike Gone Girl, I didn't really care to learn who the good guys and bad guys were (or if there really were any of either). There were a few parts that were interesting or touching or thought-provoking, but mostly it was just depressing: broken people living broken lives. And the identity of the killer wasn't even a surprise.

I got this on audio so I'm sending this copy on as a wishlist RABCK. I'll update my journal entry with my review whenever I get around to listening to it.

Thank you so much for your kindness. It's been a tough year (or two), so this was a nice thing to happen at the end of the year. I can't believe there's a Hindenburg postcard too! I've always been fascinated by the tragedy, in a horrible sort of way. Anyway, thanks again and happy holidays! :D
