Reviews

"An enthralling novel . . . that makes you feel as well as think." --The New York Times

"Delicate and terrifying . . . a modern-day Rebecca." --The Boston Globe

"The sort of old-fashioned tale that Maugham would have admired--its thrills are understated, delicious, and not to be missed. . . . [Livesey's] style recalls the early, best Hitchcock, as evil unfolds in the most commonplace of circumstances." --The Washington Post Book World

"A page-turner: suspenseful, crisp, beautifully crafted . . . Livesey is a riveting storyteller as masterful as Patricia Highsmith or Ruth Rendell." --The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Darkly humorous . . . a Shakespearean comedy with Murdochian overtones." --The New Yorker
