"Dazzling . . .the pages almost seem to turn themselves. . . . The plot culminates in a classic courtroom confrontation."
–San Francisco Chronicle
"The novel builds to several breathtaking surprises."
"Absorbing . . . A wrenching thriller . . . Patterson brings us slowly and with consummate skill into a story that winds this way, then that, before coming to a fully satisfying halt . . . One of those books you race to finish even though you don’t want it to end . . . A great read."
–New York Daily News
