Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This novel raises comparisons to Gone Girl and some of the other recent stories about characters who aren’t who they seem, but McCluskey’s beautiful prose elevates it above most of them…Haunting and lyrical, understated and true. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
[McCluskey] succeeds in handling the grief of a parent struggling with loss. For readers who want character-driven, heartrending stories that build in intensity. Library Journal
Mary McCluskey paints a delicate, deeply convincing portrait of a marriage riven by the loss of a child. Intrusion is both a classy thriller and a psychologically acute tale about the vulnerabilities grief can open up in us. Pamela Erens, author of The Virgins
In this stunning psychological drama, the choppy waters of grief and pain rock the stillness of a fragile marriage and a nearly-forgotten friendship. I was gripped by McCluskey’s authentic characters, daring prose, taut story, and deft plot twists. Intrusion is an utterly compelling debut! Ellen Meister, author of Dorothy Parker Drank Here
Gripping and emotionally complex, this heartfelt novel talks of loss and of how we deal with it, of the long shadow of grief, and of the havoc that can be caused by a need for retribution. It’s a dark tale, beautifully told. It will linger in the mind and heart long after you have closed the book. Charles Lambert, author of The Children’s Home
