It makes fascinating reading" * Telegraph * "Fossum's presentation of her characters is marked by an intelligence and compassion that is not often found in the pages of crime fiction" -- Donna Leon * Sunday Times * "Fossum's highly atmospheric and involving books are among the best being produced in the genre today... Like the best of Ruth Rendell, this is a dark and unsettling novel" -- Barry Forshaw * Crime Time *
