Editorial Reviews

Review

"A book of such accelerating tension that the pages seem to turn faster as one moves along." —Chicago Tribune

 

"As scary and suspenseful as anything in Hitchcock." —The New Yorker

 

"Extraordinary. . . . Daring. . . . Frightening in its implications." —The New York Times

 

"Fascinating, suspenseful, and morally provocative. The characterizations are sharply etched and the narrative is compelling."—Chicago Sun-Times

 

“She writes like an angel. Every character is closely drawn. Her atmosphere is unerringly, chillingly convincing. And she manages all this without for a moment slowing down the drive and tension of an exciting mystery.”

The Times (UK)
