The day Pauline sees Ramona's mug shot in the paper, she knows she's going to be called upon to relive the darkest period of her life. Charged with murder, Ramona and her husband, Jim, have also been accused of sexually abusing female victims for years in their home. And when the police discover a stash of scripts for disturbing plays performed years earlier by Pauline, Ramona, and Jim, Pauline becomes a key witness in the trial.
Tell Everything follows Pauline as she prepares for her testimony, and in the process reawakens memories that she has buried since she was a teenager. But the most difficult challenge she faces is keeping her relationship with her partner, Alex, in tact as he learns for the first time what terrible secrets lurk in her past. Tell Everything is a gripping, agonizingly vivid work from a gifted author who is not afraid to take her reader into the darkest regions of the human soul.

Deeply Intense, In a WayI liked it,
I thought it was dark and interesting, but I also never fully got connected to the story, like I just kept waiting to be really involved.
It was unusual and dark.
Brings up questions in the mind about what is sexual desire, sexual misconducted and love.
