"Tucker is a riveting storyteller whose book brims with a cathartic intelligence about the dark side of families and how we survive." -- "People"
"Engrossing and suspenseful, Tucker's remarkable fourth novel unveils the motives behind the curious behavior and superfluous lies of unusually close-knit fraternal twins...[a] satisfying, imminently readable novel." -- "Publishers Weekly "
"A compulsively readable story...nothing is as it appears in this suspenseful, well-crafted look at truth and betrayal...a haunting, harrowing story." -- "Library Journal"
"A compelling must-read novel that is part mystery, part family drama, and wholly satisfying." -- "Deseret News"
