"Violence, tenderness, unspeakable evil, and the churning torment of a lost soul a little too close to them for comfort before the final sickening surprise."
“Probably no other suspense writer takes readers as deeply into the heart of darkness as Cook.”
“There’s no ignoring [Thomas Cook’s] savage imagery, or escaping the airless chambers of his disturbing imagination.”
–The New York Times Book Review
“Hypnotic prose and fresh scenarios set [Cook’s] suspenseful fiction apart….If you’ve not yet been haunted by a Thomas Cook novel, now is a fine time to start.”
–Star Tribune, Minneapolis
“Cook uses the genre to open a window onto the human condition….Literate, compelling…Events accelerate with increasing force, but few readers will be prepared for the surprise that waits at novel’s end.”
