An absorbing book by an author who knows how to create organic suspense without ever overplaying her hand.... Intricately plotted and perfectly paced.... An excellent debut novel that deals heavily with death, but still feels alive, compassionate and full of truths.--Michael Schaub
A dense, powerful novel.--Chloe Schama and Bridget Read
This psychological thriller explores the mysteries surrounding a family still reeling from profound tragedy, and the terrifying uncertainty that meets their relocation in a distant country manor.--David Canfield
If you're looking for a mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat, add this electrifying new novel by Evgenia Citkowitz to your reading list.--Caroline Rogers
Spare, arresting, and emotionally precise. A thoroughly modern novel with a Gothic feel; a fully realized vision.
[Citkowitz's] prose sparkles as she unpacks emotional wounds.... This compact family drama captures the thinly masked desperation of grief with an eerie undercurrent.
