Gilded Needles - Michael McDowell

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! What a vicious revenge story! The novel starts slowly, but the pay off in the end has been brilliant.


Besides being a great and captivating read, the very last page made my day:


[...] she was the darling of a small but elegant hotel on the bleak coast of the North Sea at Dagebuell, near the German border with Denmark.


Dagebüll is about a 20 minute car drive away from my parents house.


Imagine Black Lena Shanks having lived in (almost) the same place as I did.
