A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. An accomplished psychological thriller that uncovers the layers of deceit and human delusion at the heart of families and which at times reaches the sharp brilliance of Ruth Rendell's similar tales about the unseen side of the middle-classes. The Randalls are affluent and unlikable in their smugness and each member of the family is etched with cruel attention to details before murder, greed, suicide and fractured relationships all come into play to disturb the dynamic and cause the walls to come crashing down in spectacular fashion. Dark and complex, this is a portrait in everyday events that quickly transcends its framework and brings chills to the heart and causes the reader to begin to question his own assumptions into the way he or she lives. Worrisome in that respect. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
