Fury ~ Shirley Marr

Wow. So in the first few pages we learn someone is dead. But who? How? Why? UGH! THE SUSPENSE IS EVIL!

Then we meet Eliza, who tells us that she is the murderer.

O.O What?

Okay, color me hooked. Fury is told in such a way that we don't get the entire story straight off. Instead, as Eliza is telling (or not telling) the 'why' to an investigator, we delve deeper into her and what led up to the event. And boy was it a shocker!

Overall, I loved this book. I feel like the ending just opened the car door and dumped me off on an abandoned highway. But you know what? That is why I love the ending! I get the feeling there will not be a sequel, and I am totally okay with that. What is wrong with stand alone books nowadays? I am supremely happy with Shirley Marr's writing style-it felt authentic. And the characters? Even the characters we are not supposed to like have a unique voice that makes them all stand out in a non-cookie cutter way.

This is one I will have to add to my collection in one way or another!
