Les vurderinger

«'An upmarket thriller... Murphy is less interested in deviant psychology than in portraying everyday lives of quiet desperation, and in this she succeeds triumphantly'»

Saturday Telegraph

«'A pulse-racing thriller'»

Wall Street Journal

«'Obscenely suspenseful. . . . In Murphy's hands, the structure becomes almost hypnotic - and when the story hits full speed in the final quarter, the suspense becomes almost excruciating'»

Publishers Weekly

«'A gifted storyteller with an unusual, hypnotic voice... truly original, it casts a spell that lingers in your mind'»

Oprah.com

«'An inventive thriller... Murphy proves skilful at generating a proper climate of dread, forcing us to focus our fears on the killer's next victim'»
