BOOK REVIEW: The Dime Box
by Karen Grose
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
Greta Giffen barely escaped being murdered by the man she grew up with. She’s not sure who Ian is, or who she is, but she’s determined to find out. When she bolts from their secluded cabin in northern Ontario and flees to Toronto, her new life comes at a price. Ian dies under suspicious circumstances and a veteran detective believes eighteen-year-old Greta has the perfect motive.
A prime suspect in a tense police investigation, Greta finds it hard to make Detective Astra Perez believe the details of her dark and appalling story. Digging deep into her sordid history and forced to face the people from her past in a new light, Greta struggles to accept the secrets that have haunted her since childhood. Still, Detective Perez remains doubtful. And until Greta herself confronts the disturbing evidence in front of her, she will never truly escape that cabin in the woods.

Greta’s father is dead. And she was the last person to visit him in the hospital before he died. He was dying of cancer, but did she kill him while she had the chance?
This is what the Detective (and the reader) wants to know throughout the entire book. But Greta wants to be heard. She and her mother endured abuse at the hand of her father for years, and nobody ever listened. Now is her chance to tell her story, even if it incriminates her even more.
The Dime Box is a gripping story. It’s a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Although it was a very sad story, I enjoyed the book.
