Odette is a quiet, happy girl, who finishes work early so decides to go home and surprise her boyfriend Gavin.

Shay has just been released from a 4 years stay in a mental hospital, after tricking her psychiatrist that she is cured of her psychopath tendencies. Shay has a sexual itch that needs to be scratched. Going to her ex-boyfriend’s Gavin’s house, she knew that he would satisfy her need.

From the moment that Odette walks in her home, and sees Shay and Gavin together something inside her snaps and surprisingly a sadistic friendship develops and Odette comes up with a “friendly” competition and they go their separate ways. What is scary is that Odette was a regular girl when it all started and how quickly she turned. The phrase hell has no fury as a woman scorned comes to mind.

As they go off to be individual killers the story gets interesting, going from one to the other, it goes on to explain how they kill and survive, especially as both of them were in a situation that they had not planned and they had to fight for their survival.  

If you are of a squeamish nature then this book is not for you, due to the graphic violence and sex in this story, but this just shows you how criminally insane both girls are. The only scene that made my stomach turn did not even involve the girls but was a scene with Trent a sadistic nightclub owner and Michelle.  I really enjoyed this book and I could not tell which author wrote which scene, the story flowed brilliant and with enough intensity that I could not put it down and read it quite quickly. I loved the idea of them having conversations with the voices in their heads and just when you think you know what is going to happen they throw a curve ball and the ending was quite a surprise.

This book is the first one I have read by these authors and I am glad that I have found two more authors for me to read.
