Skewed had to grow on me. In the beginning I was intrigued, but although I never really got into the story for a while, it kept nagging me at the back of my mind wondering how it was going to end.
Janie has been famous and followed all her life, but not for the right reasons. Her mother was the supposedly last victim of the famous Haiku Killer and killed while Janie was in utero . When Janie starts receiving photographs of the old case and the murderer, her father, is about to be released things will get complicated quickly, especially since he has always claimed to be innocent.
This one really had me guessing until the end, and it has been a while since that happened. In hindsight one can see the hints that are being dropped, but that I didn’t take on at first. The main character had a witty sort of sarcasm that I kind of liked. What I was not a big fan of was the second story from Janie’s mother’s POV which leads up to the murder but didn’t add a lot to the story. But, all in all, a nice read that did take some time to get into but it does pay off in the end.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
