Based on a reddit sensation, Old Country is a thriller about a young couple who buys a ranch only to find ancient spirits rule the land. Haunting and bone chilling, I could not put this book down. Everything came together into a conclusion that was as terrifying as it was satisfying. If you're looking for a spooky read, go ahead and add this one. You won't regret it!

I was engaged with this story from the beginning!  Part true crime, part memoir, the author tells the fascinating story of investigating a sexual assault case woven with her personal story.  No spoilers here but it was gripping, intriguing, fascinating, insightful, informative and I simply could not put it down. It was riveting and I cried when it was over. I will recommend it to everyone I know.  This is the best book I have read since Educated!
