Wicked Girl by I.V. Olokita
About The Book
So said a small white sign hung on a wall in Birmingham Mental Institution Ward number 3. It had a black frame, written in a hand they were all well acquainted with. The letters had faded over time. In the end, among all the calligraphy in the frame, one could detect a blurred signature. It was mine.
John Wilcox is a young idler who loathes people except for young women. His destiny brought him near Birmingham Mental Institution during an earthquake. At that time Wilcox saves Elsie, an eccentric, half-deranged teenager. John pulls out every manipulation at his disposal to convince her that he is the right person to help her recover. Grey, Alessi’s father, goes on a quest for his lost daughter. She, too, like her mother, was trying to escape him. And so, began the tragic story between prey, and it’s supposed predator.
Wicked Girl is a psychological crime fiction, where a sequence of accidents generates cold-blooded, and blood-curdling actions. It is a fascinating combination of romance, tension, and humor, unpredictable to the very end. Presented in a clear, straightforward way, yet its plot is packed with wit, action, and surprises grabbing the reader’s attention all the way to the last word.
This had been a raw read, unsettling and dark; full of twists and surprises that will leave the reader mouth open!
Since the beginning I didn’t like much John Wilcox, he seems wicked and with ulterior motives; he rescues a young girl after an earthquake, Elsie, but, why? Because he doesn’t do anything for being altruist! Elsie has been staying at a mental institute for a while, someone abused her, but who?
In the beginning it was a little difficult to follow the story, told between past and present it was not easy knowing who was talking and from when. But I suppose this is the interesting part of the book, the mystery and the secrets behind the “truth”.
This is not a book for everyone, is difficult to read sometimes, but is a twisted thriller with a surprising ending, if you want to discover “The Wicked Girl” now it’s your moment! Ready?
