"A story that is both terrifying and fascinating....Wholly
--Neil Gordon, "New York Times Book Review"
"One doesn't often find the caliber of writing displayed in Barker's latest, a compulsively readable novel."
--Joanne Wilinson, "Booklist"
"As briskly taut as a thriller and, at the same time, a deeply thoughtful consideration of how our lives are changed by sweeping historical tragedy and everyday acts of violence...We keep paging rapidly through the novel, even as we pause to admire the trenchant reflections."
--Francine Prose, " O" Magazine
