These are stories of women backing away from - or succumbing to - many variations of existential horror. Only Jarod Powell could convey a mother’s monstrous sense of regret by way of conjuring her dead son’s ghost through a mirror ("Marianne"). Or could explore the darkest and most hilarious aspects of depression by delineating the suicide of a woman who is simply bored of life ("Asphyxiation"). Or capture the catharsis of a mail-order bride who was sent on a twenty-year mission by her country’s government to poison a Manchurian candidate gone rogue ("Melodia").

    This is a very compelling book of stories that kept me glued until the last page. It was filled with suspense which was very thrilling and interesting to read. There were a lot of well-crafted imagery that made this collection of stories even more exciting. The plot and characters were very well-written, and the first story draws you in -- making you want to feel and know more about Marianne and her plight.

    "Oh my," was all I could say reading this book. I've read Jarod Powell's other books, and he's really upped the ante this time, in all ways. It's much neater prose than Boys in Gilded Cages. He's really learned how to rein in the weirdness and randomness he's famous for - but that's a good thing. I can't wait until May when his next novel comes out! He seems to really be progressing as a writer.
