Reviews

"Like Donna Tartt's The Secret History or a good film noir . . . Jane's low-key narration has just the right tone to keep readers hooked."
-People (Page-turner of the week)

"The strength of The Lake of Dead Languages is a silken prose that lures the reader into Goodman's . . . story of murder, suicide . . . revenge, and madness."
-The Washington Post Book World

"PART SUSPENSE, PART COMING-OF-AGE, AND ALL-ENTHRALLING . . . A book that needs the roar of a fire to ward off its psychic chill."
-The Denver Post
