Reviews

"A mesmerizing and disturbing psychological thriller. . . . Fantasy and reality entwine." --The Wall Street Journal

"Zeh is adept at describing the carelessness and perversities of the rich and famous. . . . A story about obsession--this time with status, looks, and celebrity culture." --The Independent

"Gripping. . . . Keeps the reader guessing to the end. A darkly comic thriller that is impossible to put down." --Library Journal

"Compelling. . . . Erotic intrigue, deep-sea diving and clients from hell make for a lively mix." --Kirkus Reviews

"[A] deft thriller." --Publishers Weekly

"A tale that unfolds at a high level of psychological excitement." --Der Spiegel

"This is phenomenal. . . . A nightmarish, furious, cold thriller. . . . Juli Zeh is at her literary best when she's describing underwater silence, when she's describing situations in which isolation is total and the world as it exists above water is bidden farewell." --Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung

"Juli Zeh's love-triangle drama easily bears comparison with the work of Patricia Highsmith, doyenne of the conspicuously amoral." --Brigitte
