Praise for Deborah Layton’s Seductive Poison

“A suspenseful tale of escape that reads like a satisfying thriller, Layton’s account is the most important personal testimony to emerge from the Jonestown tragedy.” Chicago Tribune

“A fascinating account of a debacle that continues to resonate.” Entertainment Weekly

“Shattering.” The Boston Globe

“An emotionally articulate and gripping account.” The Nation

“Why do apparently normal people surrender in body and soul to a charismatic egomaniac? Deborah Layton knows. This haunting book, written with candor and passion reads like a thriller. I could not put it down.” Isabel Allende

“An absolutely riveting story, told as memoir but with the pulse-pounding suspense of a murder mystery. I read Layton’s account non-stop through the night, unable to let go, struck by the realization that this is not simply an account of a bygone tragedy. It has great relevance to many of the terrible events we see unfolding today, for this is a story about those who seek a better world and are then inextricably caught in a plan to end it. This is a universal tale about ideology gone awry.” —Amy Tan
