Review: The Collective by Alison Gaylin

The Collective by Alison Gaylin

What would you do if someone close to you was murdered and justice was not served? You are grieving and angry while the murderer gets to continue their life as a free person. How far would you be willing to go to get them to pay for their actions? What if you were presented with the opportunity to take the matter into your own hands? Would you do it? If the thought of this scenario playing out in your own life made you feel angry, this book is for you.

Camille wants nothing more than for her daughter’s murderer to pay. However, she should be careful what she wishes for because her wish soon becomes a reality when she is invited to join a group called the Collective. It is a group made up of vengeful mothers who take matters into their own hands to bring their form of “justice” to those who have wronged them.

The Collective is a book unlike any other and will hold your attention until the very last page. What you think will be a simple morality tale ends up to be a much more complex web of grief, hatred, punishment, and darkness.

There is graphic language of death and violence, so be sure to check the content warnings before reading.

If you are looking for a quick read before the end of the year, be sure to pick it up soon!
