Synopsis

My brain began the painful process of shutting down, leaving behind only an empty vessel that breathed good air, a heart still beating inside a cold dead chest, lungs that tasted nothing but a bitter infusion of oxygen and nitrogen, already rancid, sour.

In the sequel to Green Monsters, Stacey Adams finds herself in a living nightmare, a personal hell of her own making. Her beloved Jason is lying dead in the hallway of his own home, blood-soaked, naked, exactly where she left him. When the police arrive at her sister’s grave, Stacey is waiting. She knows this would happen, the brutal attack on her once prized man had left him dead and bloodied, no way to cover the crime, his body unrecognisable beneath the wrath of a woman scorned. This was no accident. Her sister’s death was easy to cover. A simple car accident. A tragedy. Jason’s death, however, would never be so easy to disguise.

After being interviewed by the police, an unforced confession sees Stacey up on a murder charge. She cannot hide, the evidence all too compelling. Such a brutal attack might be hidden beneath a veil of self-defence, but Stacey knows the truth. Jason had scorned her, lied to her, and behaved too badly for him to be left alive, forcing her to kill…again. Now pregnant, she is imprisoned, her life firmly over. No one can understand her reasons, the logic behind such a grim discovery. After receiving counselling, Stacey breaks down, offers a second confession to her sister’s murder, divulging the pattern of events that led to a double murder, a dead cat, a life unravelled.

Stacey must now wage a personal battle of her own trauma alongside that of the prison system. After an attempt to commit suicide fails, she is transferred to a secure mental unit where Stacey meets Mia, a twenty-three-year-old woman suffering from Bulimia. Mia is black, gay, and often bullied beyond rational logic, her own mental state too low for her to defend herself against the brutish attacks of the other women in the unit. Mia reminds Stacey of her sister in many ways, including a hidden condition she was once forced to suffer alone. Stacey feels that she failed her sister. Failed her parents, failed her own child. The two women strike up a remarkable friendship that threatens to challenge even the most diverse of experiences. Stacey is a killer, after all, an unfortunate truth neither of them will be able to escape from.

When Stacey meets Alistair Stuard, everything changes, propelling her towards a brand new future that even she did not see coming. One thing is for certain. The life of Stacey Adams will never be the same again.
