Reviews

"Lovely, compelling. . . . The Language of Secrets explores the ramifications of loss, the aftermath of tragedy, and the sometimes terrible cost a child can pay for a parent's guilt." --Kristin Hannah

"The Language of Secrets is a psychological mystery with emotional underpinnings that will have you puzzled and intrigued right up to the moment Dixon's sleight of hand is revealed." --Sue Grafton

"Captivating. . . . Fascinating, relaxing, and fun to read." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"This year's The Memory Keeper's Daughter and a perennial book club favorite. . . . An absorbing, provocative and satisfying read from the first page." --The Huffington Post

"Suspenseful. . . . Dixon is an experienced screenwriter who knows how to . . . move the story along." --The Boston Globe

"An intriguing mystery that strings the reader along to the very end. . . . Fascinating. . . . Dixon has a wonderful way with words that will inspire readers to stay up long past their bedtimes. This one is sure to be a hit with anyone who picks it up." --Sacramento Book Review

"A mystery wrapped in a family saga with a dark psychological undertow. . . . The Language of Secrets is a taut and well-told tale of distorted love and a lack of candor, which offers searing insight into the emotions of a child who was abandoned and abused." --Pasadena Weekly

"Dixon writes convincing prose, particularly dialogue." --Kirkus Reviews

"The Language of Secrets is a tightly wound mystery. . . . Grabs you immediately. . . . A twisted and complex tale." --Midwest Book Review
