Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A heady, tense, slow-burn dream of a book, multilayered and steeped in atmosphere and peril.” Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author
“Ware develops both the reader’s doubts about and concern for Hannah as the suspense builds gradually under a masterful barrage of red herrings…Riveting.”  Booklist (starred review)
“This exceptional psychological thriller from Ware probes how much one can trust others—and one’s self…Alternating past and present chapters build toward a gripping denouement as nicely chosen details bring each character vividly to life. This showcases Ware’s gifts to the fullest.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
