Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ingeniously devious…[The] plot is so crooked it could hide behind a spiral staircase.” People
“A crackling thriller.” Chicago Sun-Times 
“Presto! With a conjuror’s flourish, the reliable Jeffery Deaver has pulled another winner out of his hat…The book’s plotting and pacing—featuring twist upon twist and reversal upon reversal—are nothing short of dazzling, reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best. Deaver proves himself an accomplished illusionist.” Amazon.com, editorial review
This is prime Deaver.” Publishers Weekly
“Well-researched and exciting, this has all the elements of good crime fiction: likable leads, a colorful supporting cast, fascinating scientific analysis, and a look at the secrets of an otherwise unknown world. A sure hit.” Booklist
