Jenny Schultz wakes trapped in a pitch-black basement with no recollection of how she got there. With no outside stimuli, Jenny naturally turns inward and revisits her guilt-ridden past, desperate to figure out which wronged person would be angry enough - evil enough - to do this to her. She must survive her own demons, and then time itself, when she finds remnants of previous captives - a plate, a tooth, a bone. Scratched hashmarks in the stone walls around her leave her to wonder what happens next.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I was sadly disappointed by the ending.
Great narrator.

Ben Jewell has hit a breaking point. His 10-year-old son, Jonah, has severe autism, and Ben and his wife, Emma, are struggling to cope. When Ben and Emma fake a separation - a strategic decision to further Jonah's case in an upcoming tribunal - Ben and Jonah move in with Georg, Ben's elderly father. In a small house in North London, three generations of men - one who can't talk, two who won't - are thrown together.

A must read. Beautifully written with a storyline that holds you right to the end. An thorough insight into what it must be like to have a child with special needs. Told from the fathers point of view. Really enjoyed it.

Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden. In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees...and a collection of precious "butterflies" - young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.
