"Cleeves' taut, atmospheric thriller will keep readers guessing until the last page . . . Chilling." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Cleeves offers up evocative settings and flawed characters with depth, making her mysteries wonderfully addictive. Her latest is no exception." --Library Journal (starred)

"I didn't expect the final reveal. Those cleverly disguised dead ends had me completely fooled, which is just the way I like it. But I was sorry to say goodbye."--Crime Fiction Lover

"A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please." --Booklist (starred review)

"Intricate and engrossing . . . offers readers the pleasures of the traditional locked room/isolated island mystery." --Washington Post Book World

If you're a fan of Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, or Val McDermid, get to know Cleeves. --Globe and Mail (Canada)
