In Bloom by CJ Skuse
The sequel to ‘Sweet Pea’ sees the Rhiannon the unconivcted criminal of uncertain reputation, pregnant and covering her tracts. She’s morally compromised and trying to stave off impending disaster. She finds not being a serial killer a frustrating existence. A cop seems to know that she is guilty of actions from which there is no return. Rhiannon has fits of pique and many failings of judgment and character. She does enduring damage and has a reluctance to acknowledge error. This is good if not brilliantly creative as Rhiannon does terrible terrible things.
