"A prophetic, hilarious, and suspenseful take on how the financial crisis turns one interior designer homicidal...Brenda Cullerton's new book is a stunning commentary on contemporary New York society."
—The Daily Beast
"[A] hilarious and unsettling novel about class war. Upper East Siders beware...this killer wears Louboutins."
—Kathleen Massara, Flavorwire
"A deliciously smart, darkly comic novel"
—New York Daily News
"Wickedly topical, with a fully developed and sympathetic protagonist, Cullerton’s debut novel abounds with juicy details about Charlotte’s exclusive world."
"Cullerton...has a real knack for satirical writing. Her supporting characters are a mostly fatuous bunch, but not so much that they stop feeling like real people; and Charlotte herself is a marvelous creation, a likably murderous woman whose solution to her intense frustration is, if not legal, at least effective."
“A brilliantly prophetic and modern tale of the macabre . . . A novel that roars across the intersection of Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho and Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities.”
—James Wolcott, Vanity Fair columnist
“The book flies cinematically, riffs ferociously, and then floats in moments of poetic contemplation and longing. Swift, sensational, The Craigslist Murders reads scathingly and emotionally true. A tour de force!”
—Laura Jacobs, author of Women About Town and The Bird Catcher
