Praise

“[An] assured debut . . . beautifully tense . . . at heart a morality tale.”
Toronto Star
 
“Ruby-Sachs brings her setting and its cast vibrantly to life: the parching heat, night-time chills, the dirt tracks and clinging Soweto dust, the families living in near-poverty yet touchingly house-proud, while their civic officials boast charmless mansions and giant plasma TVs. . . . [The final] 40 pages . . . gather up the story’s themes and plot strands in ways completely unexpected, and exhilarating.”
Globe and Mail
 
“Ruby-Sachs has set herself an impressive agenda for a first novel . . . most notably her ripped-from-the headlines plot, authentic setting, and lively dialogue sprinkled with Zulu words and phrases.”
Edmonton Journal
 
“[An] impressive debut. . . . Plays like a classic whodunit, but its mystery involves how much we really know about others — especially those people we think we know best.”
Quill & Quire
