Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. Herta Oberheuser is hired for a medical position by the Nazis. All 3 will cross paths at a concentration camp.
"To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. Sharp Objects isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so but was helpless to stop turning them. Then, after the lights were out, the story just stayed there in my head, coiled and hissing, like a snake in a cave. An admirably nasty piece of work, elevated by sharp writing and sharper insights." – Stephen King
