Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] scary, cerebral thriller...Connolly creat[es] mood and suspense with ease.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The dark themes are balanced with lyrical descriptions as Guidall makes the text sing. He portrays a hard-boiled detective whose character expands as Parker becomes compassionate towards the unlikable contract killer...Guidall helps listeners appreciate Parker’s cleverness in both sleuthing and wordplay. He also delivers a striking portrait of Maine—beautiful in its wildness and ugly in an undercurrent of seething feelings provoked by an influx of monied tourists.” AudioFile
“The disquieting subject, coupled with Connolly’s dark, lyrical prose, will leave unshakable images lurking on the edge of the reader’s consciousness.”   Booklist
