Fiona Quinn’s The Caged Bird is a chiller that has a lingering Southern Gothic ambience. The story centers on Millie Anderson, a teenager whose father Lloyd is serving time in a Richmond prison for the murder of a young woman.
Quinn’s spare yet illuminating first-person storytelling is perfect as she reveals just enough facts to urge readers forward without unnecessary story lines or characters to divert attention from examination of the facts. Also, Quinn’s descriptions of the area of the murder and Millie’s Richmond neighborhood near historic St. John’s Church are accurate and its graveyard depictions are spot-on creepy.
