One of the Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020: Washington Post - CrimeReads - LitHub - Newsday

"Exceptional descriptive skills fuel an overwhelming sense of menace: It is no mean feat to make the ending of a novel truly shocking. . . . The next day you will still be thinking of Sarah's fate with horror."--The New York Times Book Review

"Bangkok is the star of this accomplished novel. Its denizens are aliens to themselves, glittering on the horizon of their own lives, moving--restless and rootless and afraid--through a cityscape that has more stories than they know."--Hilary Mantel, Booker Prize-winning author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies

"Osborne, a journalist and novelist, [who] distinguished himself in 2018 with Only to Sleep . . . brings the same canny way with displaced characters to a politically turbulent, monsoon-drenched Bangkok in this unhurried but beautifully textured tale."--The Washington Post

"A master of the literary thriller."--Fodor's

" . . . riveting . . . There's an ominous sense of foreboding from the first page, and the tension ratchets up to a terrifying pitch before the horrifying and brutal conclusion. A gripping read."--Booklist (starred review)

" . . . masterfully drawn, mesmerizing novel. . . . A seductive, darkly atmospheric thriller with a spine-tingling climax."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Osborne is among the finest pure writers at work today . . ."--CrimeReads, "Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2020"
