Editorial Reviews

“An unnerving exploration of identity, regret, and longing. Delightfully frightening.” Globe and Mail
“Reid’s tightly crafted tale toys with the nature of identity and comes by its terror honestly, building a wall of intricately layered psychological torment so impenetrable it’s impossible to escape.” Kirkus Review (starred review)
“The eerie atmosphere set by the unidentified narrator in this haunting novel captures the imagination.” RT Book Reviews
