"Cook is a master of sustained suspense. This brilliant evocation of how the past infects the present … lures readers into labyrinths of loss, guilt, and evil intent."
— Booklist (starred review)
"[The story] is swept along by Cook’s artistry, his insights into broken people, his austere imagery of the barren landscapes that attract them."
— The New York Times
"Cook writes very well; his tone is sad, even foreboding, yet almost elegiac, as he weaves … an intricate fabric of tragedy."
— The Boston Globe
