"Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. Thrillers don't come any better than this." --Clive Barker

"A virtual textbook on the craft of suspense, a masterwork of sheer momentum that rockets seamlessly toward its climax...Harris is quite simply the best suspense novelist working today." --The Washington Post

"A psychological thriller so deftly woven and gripping that a reader can hardly get through one sentence fast enough to discover what's in the next." --Associated Press

"Superb!...Harris's chilling story lowers the reader's blood temperature by several degrees." --The New York Times

"A thriller to out-thrill all thrillers...impossible to put down!" --Detroit News

"A real roller coaster, full of hairpin turns, sickening descents and sudden accelerations." --New York Newsday

"A spine-tingling, vastly entertaining crime story...[by] a master of suspense...ingeniously macabre." --Boston Herald

"It's marvelous, the best book I've read for a very long time...It is infinitely superior to any novel published this year." --Roald Dahl

"The Silence of the Lambs will haunt for a long time; Harris places his clues and his carnage with precision." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"As remarkable as its predecessor...some of the most powerful and entertaining fiction of our time!" --The Washington Post

"Fast-paced...intriguing...exciting!" --Chicago Tribune

"Without a doubt, [Harris is] one of the most powerful writers of suspense fiction today!" --Milwaukee Journal

"Harris has once again hit us in the solar plexus. This is, in fact, a better read than Red Dragon, which is all you need to know...A page-turner, one of those books that, once picked up, becomes immediately addictive." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"The plot unreels rapidly...Hooks the reader and keeps the tension taut until the end." --Portland Oregonian

"I read the first sentence of this book, threw up my hands and then stayed up all night to finish. It didn't matter, I've scarcely slept since." --Liz Smith

"One of the most gripping reads of the year." --Kirkus Reviews

"Thrilling effective...Harris understands the crafting of literary terror as very few writers do; readers who put themselves in his good, cold-blooded hands will lose sleep and demand a sequel." --Publishers Weekly

"Intelligent, fast-paced...Hard to put down." --Library Journal

"Beautifully written." --San Francisco Chronicle
