Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hart writes with a lovely eloquence.” New York Times Book Review
“Personal detail and local history give Lake of Sorrows a heft and richness uncommon in contemporary suspense novels.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Hart’s second literary thriller starring pathologist Nora Gavin…is an Irish breakfast of a book: a kidney here, a sausage there, undeniably rich and delicious…Every character is fascinating…Hart’s language sings, and the gothic atmosphere lingers the way peat clings to the skin of bog workers.” Publishers Weekly
“Another detail-rich, character-centered mix of local history and tangled human relationships…Full of riches for readers who savor the multidimensionality of literary fiction.” Booklist
