Journal Entry 2 by wingearthcaroleannewing at Falkirk, Scotland United Kingdom on Sunday, May 30, 2021
In a large house in London's fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up. In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note. They've been dead for several days. Who has been looking after the baby? And where did they go?

The book’s multiple points of view is something I had to concentrate on, reminding myself who was talking in each chapter. The premise of the story was great and the characters were intriguing but I couldn’t help feeling the chapters in the past was a manual on ‘how to create your own cult’ and was more than a little disturbing. There were little points omitted which made you wonder and one larger one which you could have confirmed if you had gone back and re-read unless you have a great memory in the first place.
