Although this shows a lot of promise,the ending was so off the wall even for a cliff-hanger. I would give this 3.5-4 stars and I can't wait for the sequel.I think this writer has potential and I will look for her/his other works.
I was drawn in by Joey and his life. He was lonely and wanted something else and he found it in Franklin. It was a creepy story but I wanted more, I wanted it to keep going. I enjoyed this and will read Mr Brandt's other books.
