Ceremony of Flies by Kate Jonez

This is the story of Kitty, a waitress in a casino. In a rash moment after an argument with her boss, she quits and rips off her headdress and shoves it at him. Fearing she has killed him, she teams up with a man she met in the bar, Rex. They set off for Mexico, killing a few people along the way, and picking up a child and his dog. Knowing she has to change as she is responsible for the child now, Kitty tries to calm down but all the while they are seemingly running from something much larger...

This was an interesting concept, told through the eyes of Kitty, or Emily as is her real name. I can't say too much or I shall give the game away but there are little clues popped into the story at different places. I enjoyed reading this, but not as much as some I have read from DarkFuse. The pace was good, keeping me glued to the page, and the characters all suitably damaged. All in all, it was an ok read but not a great one.
