Lizzie: Dark Waters by Suzy Carlile is the tale of a young woman and how she decided to become a vigilante to seek revenge for children and women who couldn’t. Having faced death at a young age, Lizzie knew what living in a broken world was like. She had her twin sister ripped away from her, and the circumstance surrounding Lilly’s death gives Lizzie the will to carry on. Coming from an “old money” family, with a degree in nursing as well as scientist parents who specialized in botanically based pharmaceuticals, Lizzie had everything she needed at her disposal when she took on her new role.
From the jungles of Cambodia to the lavish Harmen Lakehouse and their farm in Brazil, Suzy Carlile took us to so many locations in just a few chapters. Despite the abrupt start, Lizzie is a quick and easy read. The novel flows at a steady place and allows us enough time to gather the facts before moving on to new characters. Apart from being a murder mystery, the story also echoes the theme of rebirth through two characters possessing the name Elizabeth, with one born to pain and another to revolution. I loved that I was able to see behind Lizzie’s amber eyes and discover how her mind works. With her newfound purpose, Lizzie utilizes the education and tools afforded her to achieve it. This is a beautiful but sad tale about a woman who did what many of us wish we could.
