One of the Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020: Washington Post • CrimeReads • LitHub  • Newsday

“Exceptional descriptive skills fuel an overwhelming sense of menace: It is no mean feat to make the ending of a novel truly shocking. . . . The next day you will still be thinking of Sarah’s fate with horror.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Bangkok is the star of this accomplished novel. Its denizens are aliens to themselves, glittering on the horizon of their own lives, moving—restless and rootless and afraid—through a cityscape that has more stories than they know.”—Hilary Mantel, Booker Prize–winning author of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies
“Osborne, a journalist and novelist, [who] distinguished himself in 2018 with Only to Sleep . . . brings the same canny way with displaced characters to a politically turbulent, monsoon-drenched Bangkok in this unhurried but beautifully textured tale.”The Washington Post

“A master of the literary thriller.”—Fodor’s

” . . . riveting . . . There’s an ominous sense of foreboding from the first page, and the tension ratchets up to a terrifying pitch before the horrifying and brutal conclusion. A gripping read.”Booklist (starred review)

“ . . . masterfully drawn, mesmerizing novel. . . . A seductive, darkly atmospheric thriller with a spine-tingling climax.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Osborne is among the finest pure writers at work today . . .”CrimeReads, “Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2020
