Rachel, an 18-year-old Columbia University student descends into the netherworld of runaways and predators to find her sister, Olivia, who has suddenly disappeared. After getting a job in a strip joint where Olivia worked, then doing private shows in the homes of rich clients, Rachel discovers that Olivia has been abducted by a killer who auctions the deaths of young girls in an eBay of agony. As she closes in on the killer who has taken Olivia, Rachel becomes his next target.

In The Schwarzschild Radius, Rachel, an 18-year-old university student wants to find her sister Olivia. Olivia disappeared suddenly after working in a strip joint, and Rachel fears the worst. She goes undercover in the world Olivia once belonged to. She gets a job in the strip joint she once worked, and discovers that Olivia was abducted by a killer who auctions murders on eBay. But closing in on the killer means she may become his next target…

This is a fast-paced, suspenseful thriller, and definitely not for the faint of heart. The world Rachel descends into is filled with mayhem and madness and people so wicked they made me nauseous. But the writing is excellent, the characters shine, in particular Rachel. She’s one of the most resourceful heroines I’ve ever read about, determined to find her sister against all cost, no matter what it takes.

The stakes are very high – Rachel’s own life is at stake – and the book is relentless in that the suspense never slows down. Simply amazing, and recommended to all thriller fans.
