Edgar Award NOMINEE 2009
“For her mastery of mood, her complex story lines and her shrewd appreciation of the frail boundaries that divide the sane from the mad, Morag Joss has been compared to…Ruth Rendell, Barbara Vine, and Minette Walters. Such compliments are tossed about too lightly in the publishing world, but this one is so justified it seems like an understatement.” —Washington Post
"Morag Joss has been compared with the high priestesses of British crime fiction: P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, and Minette Walters. The Night Following her latest and perhaps her best, not only travels the same elegantly dark path of those writers, but tears into territory totally unbeholden to genre conventions."—Boston Globe
“Will remind readers of Ruth Rendell and Minette Walters…. The results are extraordinary.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“A haunting journey that should burnish the reputation of Joss as one of Britains most original crafters of psychological suspense.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“In this bleak, exquisitely written novel, Joss braids together three stories of shattering loneliness that intersect in surprising, haunting ways.”—Entertainment Weekly
“His best book yet…. Kornfield comes across as the therapist you wish you’d had…. Provides convincing and illustrative anecdotes and stories, and reaches into world traditions and literature as well as contemporary scientific research.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
