Reviews

"The plot is darkly, intricately layered, full of pitfalls and switchbacks, smart and funny and moving and merciless; the characters are allthat and more. This is a powerful exploration of how truth isn't a complete andimmutable thing, or a pure force of redemption: it's made up of broken shardsthat lie buried somewhere in the spaces between people, and when the jaggededges work their way to the surface, they can be devastating." --Tana French, author of the New York Times bestselling In the Woods and The Trespasser "Dark, intense, and disturbing, Christopher Yates' Grist Mill Road begins with a shock and keeps the suspense burningpage after page. A thriller with imagination to spare. Highly recommended." --Krysten Ritter, author of Bonfire "Christopher Yates' Grist Mill Road is aterrific thriller.
