Ania Ahlborn pens an ode to Robert Bloch’s Psycho with a mid-1970’s New York backdrop in The Pretty Ones.
The Son of Sam is on the loose and Nell Sullivan is undergoing some major changes at work. Despite the growing fear and tension in the city, this may be Nell’s big year. She may finally fit in and have some friends at last. Luckily for her, she has her brother Barrett with her to guide her thru her extreme social awkwardness. That is if she can navigate “the pretty ones” in the office and make them accept her into their group.
An enjoyable novella and homage to one of the greats. 3.5 Stars!
