'This is journalism at its very best ... Undoubtedly Seierstad's most powerful narrative to date.' -- The Sunday Times 'Scrupulously researched ... [Seierstad] has a remarkable eye for the haunting detail, particularly of empathy, and of grief.' -- The Daily Mail '[A] masterful and forensically detailed account of what may be the first cultural-ideological spree killing in history.' -- The Telegraph
