"A father's betrayal of his child and a heritage of horror on a potentially biblical scale propel the plot of this absorbing new thriller. Campbell's true achievement is the depiction of Daniella's hitherto secure world dissolving into a paranoid nightmare where the people whom she depends on most prove the ones she can least trust. The novel's sinister imagery and sleekly paced frights put a dark gloss on what is ultimately a haunting reflection on the differences that painfully divide parents from children and the intransigence of the older and younger generations." -Publishers Weekly
