wow. I cannot believe how good most of the books I've read lately have been! and this one could top a whole bunch of them--wonderful so far, so creepy, so perfect for Halloween month. I had read two books by this author, a long time ago, and they were okay, but Native Rites couldn't compete with Harvest Home, and his other one was a solid Police Procedural set in...Rome, I think? that tells you how much I remember...but this! Little Sister is perfect, up to page 104. these Timmer sisters, and their sinister new protector, Vera--obviously tied to some weird, manipulative shite--are pretty much guaranteed to mesmerize me over the next few days. exceeding my expectations, and may eclipse the last 20 reads, which would be a big deal!
