A crime writer at the top of his game. - The Australian Robotham doesn't make me scared for his characters. He makes my heart ache for them. - Linwood Barclay One of Australia's best crime writers - Herald Sun I love this guy's books. - Lee Child Haunting...Robotham expertly raises the tension as the action hurtles toward the devastating climax. Readers will hope the complex Cyrus will return for an encore. - Publishers Weekly, starred review Explosive...This sensitive, suspenseful mystery firmly establishes Robotham in the top ranks of psychological-thriller writers. And it cries out for a sequel. - Booklist It's the careful and often poignant interplay between Cyrus and Evie that elevates this consistently stellar yarn...Robotham is a master plotter at the top of his form, and readers will surely hope to see more of his complicated new characters. - Kirkus Reviews
