KEPT IN THE DARK
Hancock’s fiction debut is hard to categorize. While it contains suspense and gothic plot twists, the story is, at heart, one of a woman’s psychological unraveling and the impact her impulsive act has on two families. While some plot points may be hard to swallow and the ending vague and unsettling, Hancock is adept at characterization. You’ll go deep into the mind of the disturbed anti-heroine and feel sympathy for her and for her all-too human neighbor.
