It's the year 1914 in Hurston, Ohio. Helen Hawkins is a twelve-year-old girl stifled by her life in an ultra-religious household. But it takes a turn for the worse when she is subjected to repeated sexual assaults by her father that continue to be ignored by her mother. A century later, high school senior Cassie is on her way to school when she inexplicably finds herself staring at the dead body of a young woman lying in a bathtub. To her horror, Cassie finds her consciousness trapped in the body of a thirty-year-old man. Meanwhile, a patient at the Ward for the Criminally Insane at Hatford Hospital repeatedly claims to be Randall Davis instead of Jimmy Williams. Fans of supernatural horror are in for a treat. Murder: It's All In Your Head by Cynthia Hilston seems set to haunt your deepest dreams.
A dark and twisted tale of hatred and unfathomable rage, Murder: It's All In Your Head is a never-ending nightmare that you simply can't wake up from. Author Cynthia Hilston weaves a violent and vengeful yarn of terror that keeps getting scarier as the pages unfold. There are plenty of flashbacks, and the narrative keeps switching POVs to create an intricate plot that makes for an engrossing reading experience. The plot moves at a fast pace, and the characters feel rich with deep and distinct personalities. Cynthia Hilston deftly explores the ramifications of abuse and how it breaks a person's spirit, turning them into a shell of their former selves. Altogether, I found Murder: It's All In Your Head to be flawless. No horror fan should miss it.
