October 1952 –– A father murdered. A daughter sexually assaulted, beaten, left for dead. As a rule, in the 1950s, a good girl didn’t admit being raped—and she’d never seek revenge for her father’s murder. But Kristin Van Dijk didn’t play by the rules.
I’d wake in the middle of the night and say to myself, “It’s just business, Kristin.” In my heart I knew that using words like business, work, and jobs was Sarge’s way of talking about killing. Albert would say, “Stop a man instead of kill him.” Henry had his euphemisms, too. “We fix,” he’d say. “They know what they’re teaching you to do,” I said to my image.
No one was saying it straight out––and the more I looked in the mirror, the more I realized that I wasn’t saying it, either. I’d become an actress––a dangerous actress––full of deceit and lethal skills.
