"terrifyingly macabre"

Myriad microaggressions, interspersed with snippy excerpts from social media platform “OurHood” (which will be wincingly familiar to anyone who is on the NextDoor network), escalate out of control as Sydney gets threatening phone calls and starts to hear noises in the walls. Cole expertly ratchets up the tension as this tale of systemic racism, rampant capitalism and the concomitant exploitation of the poor and disadvantaged becomes increasingly and terrifyingly macabre.
