“Funny story. You know when you’re escorted by a policewoman from your place of work in handcuffs? Naked. Covered in blood.
Covered in someone else’s blood.
So embarrassing – handcuffs.”
Men had always wanted Susi, even before she'd realised the power of her body – her wildness had scared them and they wanted to tame her, keep her, control her. For years her animal instincts have kept her safe, but this time she’s made a mistake and now she's trapped, trying to figure out how to take back control before her time runs out.
We all like an excuse to be bad...
