Alison Gaylin joins Carol Fitzgerald to talk about her latest thriller, The Collective, which looks at a collision of grief, obsession, and rage amongst a group of women who have lost their children at the hands of murderers.

Camille, who tragically lost her daughter, is approached by a woman who says, “I know who you are. I know how you feel.” From there, she senses a kinship with the people in The Collective. Camille tries to decide if the woman of The Collective are truly avenging angels or monsters.

Alison shares how she researched this dark topic, including her view on the dark web. She talks about ramping up the tension, confessing to scaring herself a few times as she wrote. They also talk about monsters, both real and imagined. The ending is one that Carol did not see coming. Did Alison?
