Suspense is beautifully intertwined with everyday incidents; the delicate line between belief and disbelief is faultlessly drawn.
A succession of solid and quite legitimate surprises. The suspense is admirably sustained.
A darkly brilliant tale of modern deviltry that induces the reader to believe the unbelievable. I believed it and was altogether enthralled.
