"Captivating." -- New York Times Book Review

"Yamashita deliciously exploits the eerie mystique of Whittier [and] conjures up fresh plot twists galore." Washington Post

"The claustrophobic atmosphere in this unique one-building town, isolated by tunnels, weather, and secrets, builds a memorable debut crime novel."--Library Journal (starred review)

"An urban Alaska detective unlocks menacing secrets in a frigid, sinister small town. . . .[R]iddles large and small add fuel to the mystery on the way to the final solution. An offbeat, sharply written thriller." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
