Booklist Reviews 2016 March #1

Jess Moulson is a heroin addict who wakes up in the hospital with no memory of why or how she got there. Eventually she learns that she started a fire in her apartment, where she suffered severe burns requiring multiple surgeries, but that's not the worst of it; she is also under arrest for killing Alex, the little boy upstairs. She won't cooperate with her lawyer and ends up in Fellside, a women's prison in Yorkshire, England. There she goes on a hunger strike, the only way she can take her own life. When she is just a day or two from death, the ghost of Alex appears in her room and tells her she is not his murderer, demanding her help in finding the real killer. That won't be easy, as she is returned to the general prison population after abandoning her hunger strike; branded a child killer, she is treated accordingly. This is a dark, suspenseful, and occasionally brutal paranormal mystery with an unreliable narrator. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Jess wakes up in a hospital room with no memory of how she got there. She is under arrest for setting her apartment on fire, an act that left her disfigured, injured her boyfriend, and killed Alex Beech, a young boy who lived upstairs. Her own recollections too muddled by her heroin use to know what happened, Jess begins to believe the accusations. When she is convicted of murder, Jess is sent off to Fellside, a new privately run high-security prison bordering the Yorkshire moors. There she is visited by Alex's ghost, who tells her she was not to blame for his death. As she and Alex search for the truth, Jess becomes embroiled in the schemes of a drug-smuggling ring that has turned Fellside into a dangerous place for anyone who doesn't play along. VERDICT Carey presents another genre-defying novel. While his first, The Girl with All the Gifts, was frightening because of an imagined future, this new book is terrifying owing to the realistic possibilities explored. Less a traditional ghost story than a send-up of the prison-industrial complex with a healthy dose of magic realism, this eerie tale is sure to hook crime fiction and horror lovers.—Portia Kapraun, Delphi P.L., IN
