There, obviously, are spoilers and my interpretation of an explanation for the proceedings in the book, especially that frustratingly incomplete ending. Do NOT blame me if it ruins the end for you. Stop reading this. And go read the book. Angel of the Dark. Neither did the blurb in the back. And boy, am I glad it did. When I started reading the book, I sensed something very different from the usual crime-thriller genre of books I enjoy reading.

It was just…unique. But, obviously, nothing followed. Here is my interpretation of this story. Her POV has never been clear, concise, true. Sophie was mentally unstable. She had chanced upon the story of Mirriam in her childhood.

That is when she cooked up the name Sofia Basta. Because of her unhappy childhood and absent parents, she harbored a certain hate towards parents who left their kids. Also, because of sexual assaults on her person from a very early age, men were a complete no-no in her mind. That is also where her trust issues took root.

A mastermind with an idle schedule, she started looking for a scape goat to score revenge for all the times she was violated. Frances Mancini proved to be one. That is when the first victim, Andrew Jakes, was murdered. Charming and unsuspecting, he was very easy for her to read, as was every other man in her life. She realized that in spite of all the evidence pointing towards her being, if not the main perpetrator, but at least a part of the murder, Danny chose to override his first instinct and trust Angela Wife no.

This encouraged the psychopath in her to conspire and plan with Frances for further escapades, motives being either monetary or purely the adrenaline rush that accompanied the murders.

The blood lust, primarily, was hers, but she let Frances play it out. When Matt Daley estranged son of Andrew Jakes and a writer who wanted to make a documentary on the killing came into picture and her life, Sofia came to know that she and Frances were drawing way too much attention to themselves.

This was going big. By the time she met Matt as Lisa, they had already gotten away with at least 3 known murders. She knew it was only a matter of time before there would be a lot more people on their case.

It would, then, be difficult to get away with these proceedings as easily. She figured out a plan to use her last heist as a way of disappearing off the face of the earth. With exorbitant planning, she let Danny, Matt and David Ishag the unsuspecting supposed last victim who had been pulled in the loop by Danny catch up with her.

The hushed murder of Frances followed, the motive being revenge for his abuse on her dormant side all these years. After this was done, she met up with Matt, the one man left who was ready to go any lengths to protect her or vouch for her. Carlos, unfortunately, had to be killed by her in the process, seeing as he was the only one apart from Matt who knew about her being alive and her whereabouts.

All she wanted, after killing Carlos, was a fleeting moment of happiness with Matt. But, Matt did the inexcusable. He made the mistake of leaving his wife and unborn child, becoming another one of the men Sofia loathed.

In the end, I like to think Sofia Basta got her happy ending. She was in the story she had always wished to be in. This was literally the most stupid analysis of the book ive read so far.
