Praise for Our Picnics in the Sun
“The British writer’s latest is a psychological dazzler.”—Entertainment WeeklyPraise for Morag Joss’s Among the Missing
“This remarkable novel has an abundance of suspense at its core, put forth in beautiful prose that all but glows on the page. . . . [Joss] keeps a jittery tension going as the novel spins toward its violent, grand-scaled finale.”—Booklist (starred review)
“A haunting, harrowing punch to the heart, Among the Missing
is flat-out brilliant. About the secrets we keep, the lives we are desperate to live, and the chances we miss, it’s a psychological dazzler. Truly, one of my favorite books of this year—or any year.”—Caroline Leavitt, author of Is This Tomorrow
“Morag Joss is a writer who knows the old truth that genuine suspense comes not from car chases or gunplay but from the clash of conflicting hearts. Among the Missing
is evidence not of a rising talent but of one already fully formed.”—Thomas H. Cook, author of Sandrine’s Case
“A spectacular psychological thriller . . . Joss’s beautiful, evocative novel is filled with tension and suspense.”—RT Book Reviews
