This is a prequel book to the other three Selkie Moon mysteries by Virginia King. Even the protagonist’s name tells a story. Spooky text messages and memories of an uncomfortable (to say the least) house party. This horrific scenario got my mind racing, I was reminded of a film, Mike Leigh’s Naked . Not the same storyline, but made me think of it. The tease of folklore makes you think that there is more to this story… and there is! The next book in the series… In this short prequel, Virginia King’s writing style and plot thickening skills provides her readers with trust that it’s worth finding out what happens next.
