Murder: It’s All in Your Head
by Cynthia Hilston
Someone has been getting away with murder for over 100 years in the small town of Hurston, Ohio. But the wrong person has been convicted of those murders every time. In 2018, Cassie Meadows is on her way to school when a bright flash comes out of nowhere, and she wakes in millionaire Randy Davis’s body with blood on her hands…the blood of Randy’s wife, who lies in a pool of crimson in the bathtub with her throat slit. Meanwhile, an old man everyone calls Jimmy Williams raves that he’s the real Randy Davis as he lives out his days in a ward for the criminally insane. In 1914, young Helen Hawkins is unloved and repetitively abused by her father, who is also the town’s pastor. Her only escape is in her dreams, where she wakes in others’ bodies, living other lives, but when her dreams turn out to be reality, the tables are turned on her father. In a story where no one is who they seem, how can Cassie, the latest victim accused of a murder she didn’t commit, end the cycle?
This was an amazing, off the wall, twisted and disturbing but yet it was an utterly gripping read! In 1914 we meet Helen Hawkins, who is repeatably abused by her father who just so happens to be the town’s pastor – my heart went out to Helen at what she had to endure at the hands of her father. When Helen discovers she can wake up on other people’s bodies this become a source of escape for her, and when she managed to take over her fathers body she thinks she will put and end to her abuse. Sadly it isn’t enough to stop him though, and you are put through an emotional hell alongside Helen. Then we have Cassie and Randy – two people in 2018 who have somehow woke up in someone else’s body with no idea how and unable to convince anyone of that fact.
You are really taken on an emotion journey with each character who find themselves in different bodies, yet unable to get anyone to believe them! The whole body swapping spin was well done, the story line, though hard at times to read at times was brilliant and over all this was just one of those psychological thrillers that will have you hooked from the start.
