Reviews

[A] terrific novel of suspense. . . Lasdun presents the inexorable turnings of fate in a subtle and disconcerting way.
Expertly playing the noir card, Lasdun dissects the mercurial relationships among a wealthy financier, his photographer wife and an aimless cousin during a long hot summer in upstate New York. There are plenty of lies and betrayals in this stylish thriller, but it's the slow burn of obsession that makes it sing.
As the pages turn, the nervous tension ticks ever higher in Lasdun's combustible psychological thriller.
Exquisitely written yet propulsively entertaining all at the same time. . . a journey into the psyche of a stalker by someone who has been stalked.
Elegant and disturbing. . . . This simple-seeming novel, so graceful in its unfolding, proves dense with psychological detail and sly social observations.
Superbly engaging and intelligent psychological thriller. . . . A compulsively readable tale of money, power, and betrayal.--Lionel Shriver
