The October List Press Reviews

'A clever, demanding stand-alone ... As the ingenious plot folds back on itself, the reader has to reevaluate and reinterpret the constantly shifting facts in the case. The finished picture finally emerges with a shock of recognition. This is brilliant craftsmanship in a vastly entertaining package.' -- Publishers Weekly

'Deaver writes crime fiction - thrillers you want to race through - and he's bloody good -- The Big Issue Sometimes the purest escapism can only be found in a knuckle-bleaching thriller that messes with your blood pressure. This is a job for Jeffery Deaver' -- Saga Magazine

 

'It's everything we've come to expect from a man at the top of his game ... a great read -- Sun Deaver dispenses expository bits and cliffhangers with a mastery that'll make you smile even more broadly after you realize how thoroughly you've been hoodwinked.
