Review by: Kameko Murakami on May 18, 2012 :
This was a wonderfully creative spin on the serial killer genre, and I was hooked from the very first sentence.

Senseless murder! Dirty secrets! Secret societies! Sexy parties!

It's like every noir story I've ever enjoyed... except with flower-headed people.

I'll never look at my rose bushes in quite the same way again.

Especially when it's time to prune them back.
