Just finished reading ‘The Girl in the Maze’ and liked it very much (Would make an interesting film). I wouldn’t call it a mystery as we find out early who the killer is. I would call it a wonderfully written Psychological Thriller, frightening when consider the goings on inside Martha’s head. From what I know of mental illness from individuals I know, the things that are happening to Martha are real to her. While the others characters in the book see the events around them as bad, Martha views them as terrifying. I think R.K. Jackson has portrayed a vulnerable, yet strong character named Martha Covington, one I’m sure you will sympathize with . The other characters are interesting as well. Grab yourself a copy of ‘The Girl in the Maze’, you’ll be sure to enjoy it. I give the book 4/5 Stars.
The Girl in the Maze: A Thriller
by R.K. Jackson @JacksonJPL
~~~ Book Description ~~~
When Martha Covington moves to Amberleen, Georgia, after her release from a psychiatric ward, she thinks her breakdown is behind her. A small town with a rich history, Amberleen feels like a fresh start. Taking a summer internship with the local historical society, Martha is tasked with gathering the stories of the Geechee residents of nearby Shell Heap Island, the descendants of slaves who have lived by their own traditions for the last three hundred years.
As Martha delves into her work, the voices she thought she left behind start whispering again, and she begins to doubt her recovery. When a grisly murder occurs, Martha finds herself at the center of a perfect storm—and she’s the perfect suspect. Without a soul to vouch for her innocence or her sanity, Martha disappears into the wilderness, battling the pull of madness and struggling to piece together a supernatural puzzle of age-old resentments, broken promises, and cold-blooded murder. She finds an unexpected ally in a handsome young man fighting his own battles. With his help, Martha journeys through a terrifying labyrinth—to find the truth and clear her name, if she can survive to tell the tale.
