Product Details


*"Cormier is in top form in this cilling portrait…a sense of ‘tenderness’ pervades this gripping tale."
School Library Journal, starred review

"Cormier’s latest is a mesmerizing plunge into the mind of a psychopathic teen killer that is both deeply disturbing and utterly compelling."

"A serial killer; an aging cop with a hunch; an impulsive 15-year-old runaway: Three familiar characters are spun by a master of suspense into another disturbing study in emotional dysfunction."
Kirkus Reviews

"Rarely has Cormier’s irony been darker…readers will stay on the edge of their seats."
Publishers Weekly
