Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A skillfully wrought tale of atonement in a frame of psychological suspense.” Booklist
“Taut with moral complexity and a subtly building tension, this is the kind of story that punishes you if you dare to put it down. ” Kim Cross, author of What Stands in a Storm
“Smart, taut, and seductive, Reilly’s second novel immediately catches you in its grip and doesn’t let you go.” Michelle Hoover, author of Bottomland
“Riveting and deeply insightful…[Reilly’s] characters are so organic, so painfully relatable, that their secrets, their dark desires, their moral failures somehow feel like our own.” John Ward, author of The Sovereign
“A novel that stays surprising from beginning to end and refuses to provide easy answers for the moral quandaries at its heart…Riveting.” Suzanne Berne, author of The Dogs of Littlefield
