Editorial Reviews

“Wonderful—suspense and surprises, real characters, and a scary, ominous back beat. This feels like the book Jackson was born to write.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A smart, original thriller with real, compelling characters and a chilling reveal.” Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author
“[An] epic duel between two flawed women—it’s the perfect thriller to round out your summer.” People
“ Jackson packs in dramatic reveals about the women’s complex histories.” Time
“Jackson builds on her talent for creating imperfect, capable, and multilayered characters to write smart suspense.” Booklist (starred review)
“Jackson does a pitch-perfect job narrating her own novel. The Alabama-born writer gets the pretend-nice, passive-aggressive, classically Southern voice just right.” BookPage (starred audio review)
“It’s a stay-up-all-night kind of book. Compulsively readable.” Kirkus Reviews
“A contemporary thriller expertly narrated by the author…Joshilyn Jackson’s skills as an author are rivaled by her talents as a narrator. Jackson sets the story in a Florida Panhandle community, and she delivers the appropriate accents. From beginning to end, she breathes life into her characters, vocally representing the wide range of emotions found in this roller-coaster of a story. Intense scenes cause one to listen with breathless anticipation. Jackson provides yet another performance sure to thrill listeners.” AudioFile
