"Keen and ruthless observations of human foibles." -New York Times Book Review

"Keen and ruthless observations of human foibles." - New York Times Book Review
"Neighbors offers the kind of reading that'll keep you up all night...If there is any literary justice, Ginsberg soon will be a huge star. This might be your last chance to say, 'I knew her when.'" - Dallas Morning News

"Immensely talented...Ginsberg gets all the suburban details right...the suspense and tension keep tightening and building to a shocker at the end, which shows that home may be where the heart is, but it's also where the secrets are." --Boston Globe

"In this explosive, heat-driven melodrama, the mistakes of a misguided teenager establish once again that what goes around, comes around...edgy, bracing and inventive."

"Ginsberg's writing is undeniably compelling, attracting that part of us that draws closer and closer to a horrible car accident, fearing the horrors we may find and yet needing to sate our curiosity."--Associated Press

"The characters in Debra Ginsberg's new book have a lot of turmoil below the surface of their cul-de-sac existence." --San Diego Union Tribune

"As you might expect, nothing is as it seems. Everyone has deep, dark secrets." --North County Times

"A gripping suburban suspense novel with real people at its core. This will appeal to fans of domestic suspense (by, e.g., Mary Higgins Clark, Lisa Gardner) as well as Tom Perrotta's suburban exposés." --Library Journal

"Teeming with secrets...dark, funny and sometimes creepy." --Kirkus Reviews

"Fans of Desperate Housewives will enjoy Ginsberg's engaging...mix of domestic drama and psychological suspense...Everyone is a suspect here; even seemingly upstanding citizens have closets bulging with skeletons...deliciously flawed characters." --Booklist

"An immensely interesting novel, The Neighbors Are Watching just may cause readers to look more closely out of their own windows." --BookPage

Praise for The Grift
"[A] clever thriller." --New York Times Book Review

"Ginsberg smoothly sketches captivatingly flawed characters." - Entertainment Weekly

"Unusually seductive...Read it for the not-so-predictable deceptions and the ghostly elusiveness of love." - O, The Oprah Magazine
