'Tranter knows how to structure a mystery and keep readers turning pages. It is a rare and unbeatable combination' Australian Book Review.
'A potent story of secrets, love, friendship and the bonds that keep people close ... Brimming with blackmail and deception, Tranter's second novel does not disappoint' Australian Bookseller & Publisher.
'The story, carefully unravelled, is about the aftermath. It's a bit like a Barbara Vine novel, or Donna Tartt's The Secret History. It's compulsive; it sucks you in' Evening Standard.
'Tightens around the reader like a vice ... Makes most other psychological thrillers seem simple-minded' The Australian.
'A seductive thriller' The Lady.
