Product Details


“[An] inspired debut . . . The work’s strength lies in the ways Burt complicates her archetypal characters . . . An engaging family tragedy.” —Publishers Weekly

The Dig is a riveting and chilling tale that mixes family drama and corporate intrigue (à la Succession) with thought-provoking insights about immigration, adoption, and the horrors of war. I couldn’t put it down.” ––Angie Kim, Author of the Edgar Award winning Miracle Creek

“Mesmerizing, twisty, and beautifully written, The Dig combines the propulsive pacing of a thriller with the intimacy of a family drama.” —Christina Baker Kline, New York Times #1 bestselling author of Orphan Train

“Equal parts family drama and suspenseful thriller, The Dig is a mesmerizing exploration of family, secrets, and betrayal. Beautifully written and resonant, Anne Burt draws a complex portrait of one young woman and what she discovers about herself—and her orphaned past in war-torn Sarajevo—while she searches for her missing brother. A brilliant debut from a brilliant writer.” —S. Kirk Walsh, bestselling author of The Elephant of Belfast

The Dig is a smart, layered page turner whose propulsive plot takes on big contemporary issues about immigration and the fog of war. Toni King is a great character, a young women seeking a foothold in life and work but thrown off track by her own family. Anne Burt better write another novel soon!” —Alice Elliott Dark, author of Fellowship Point and In the Gloaming
