Praise

“Devilishly good. . . . A marital thriller more scary than Gone Girl.” —The Washington Post

“So creepy you want to take a shower after reading it.” —Newsday

“A page-turner. Once the surprises start coming out, it’s hard to put down.” —New York Daily News
 
“Marinovich has crafted a riveting, gruesome and dark story as chilling as the winter landscape.” —The Free Lance-Star

“The slow, relaxed pace is perfect for building this almost ghostly, frightening tale. . . . As if stringed instruments are playing in the background, readers will feel dizzy with alarm and the feeling of foreboding that builds the thrills and chills perfectly.” —Suspense Magazine
 
“A psychological noir thriller. . . . One shocking surprise leads to the next, culminating in mayhem and revelations of twisted family secrets.” —The Sacramento Bee
 
The Winter Girl is a dark and ever darkening psychological thriller.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Sharp and delightfully treacherous. . . . This is one of the leanest, meanest books I’ve read in a long, long time. I suspect Jim Thompson would’ve loved it. James M. Cain, too. And Patricia Highsmith. That’s how great this book is.” —Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan
 
“A sexy update of Hitchcock’s Rear Window.” —Travel + Leisure
 
“The twists are clever and the pacing relentless.” —Booklist
 
“Unsettling but oh so fulfilling.” —Sag Harbor Express
 
“Family secrets and marital transgressions weave a suspenseful Hitchcockian story of intrigue, mystery, and deceit.” —Library Journal
 
“[The Winter Girl], like an impending winter storm, is filled with menace and the threat of destruction. . . . The story builds to a crescendo of murder and betrayal.” —The East Hampton Star
 
“An engrossing, disquieting read.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Watching this husband and wife steadily get in deeper and deeper is almost as thrilling as trespassing.” —BookPage
 
“An unnerving and entertaining story.” —Shelf-Awareness
