"Barry parallels the cutthroat natures of journalism and film, skillfully blending a nuanced millennial perspective with noir shadings and a haunted-house atmosphere."-- "Booklist, STARRED REVIEW"
"Vibrant characters match the intricate plot. This thrilling mystery is essential reading for fans of Hollywood's golden age."--

-- "Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"
"Windhall is Barry's first novel, and it is one heck of a debut. She nails her protagonist's first-person voice and vividly channels the Hollywood vernacular and vibe both past and present."-- "BookPage, Starred Review"
"An intoxicating throwback. This highly cinematic modern-day mystery, which revolves around a 70-year-old unsolved murder, is a sparkling homage to Hollywood's Golden Age."-- "Shelf Awareness"
"Years after the murder of her parents, heiress Melia van Aust hires P.I. Rainey Hall to find the culprit and the root out Melia's stalker. But Rainey has a dark history of her own. Chilling."-- "People Magazine, Best Books Fall 2022"
"The plot of this exhilarating and intricate novel ebbs and flows between fast-paced action and relaxed moments of narrative exposition."-- "Booklist"
"[A] seductive neo-noir...This evocative novel demonstrates that both the city [Los Angeles] and its magic remain very much alive."-- "Publishers Weekly (Starred)"
"I was absorbed in the world Ava Barry concocted in Double Exposure to the point where I found myself irritated when I had to do other tasks that took me away from reading. The writing is evocative."--Sara Weinman "The New York Times Book Review"
"Double Exposure contains many evocative passages on Hollywood old and new--on the culture and personalities of a region whose mix of fact and contrivance creates a unique atmosphere."

--Tom Nolan "The Wall Street Journal"
"This provocative, character-driven drama manages to keep its surprising twists in focus while also giving readers a lyrical look at Los Angeles. A stupendous turn adds an intense level of terror to Double Exposure."-- "Shelf Awareness"
