This short novella starts in the mid 1940’s and tells the story through the years about a cursed locket that forces the wearer to kill the people they love. Whether it somehow activates the hidden rage we all harbour within ourselves, or it is actually cursed, will be down to the reader to decide.
A canny detective O’Day eventually recognises this necklace has been mentioned in a lot of murders through the years. He doesn’t know, when it eventually falls into his hands, why he feels the need to lock it away from human contact. But he does. The stories that unfold around this locket are unique in the fact that the victims are murdered by whatever was appropriate for that time frame. So each one is distinctly different and therefore they do not get tedious to read. The only thing I can say that would have made this better for me would be to learn how the locket became cursed in the first place. Maybe that’ll come out in a sequel!
I gave this book 4 Stars.
