Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The novel’s deeper meditations will keep you thinking long after you’ve closed the book.” USA Today
“Westlake’s fans will note the author’s typically careful use of description and dialogue…But this is no typical Westlake novel; in fact, in many ways it’s one of his most interesting books, simply because it’s so very different.” Booklist (starred review)
“Lovely language and the overall discourse on the consequences of thoughtlessness make this a significant final work from a master.” Publishers Weekly
“The three-time Edgar winner and Mystery Writers of America Grand Master left a huge body of work as well as a devoted following. Noir fans will be eager to jump on this ‘found’ work even though it’s different from much of his later more comedic work.” Library Journal
