"What begins as a hunt quickly becomes a cunning test of wills, a battle for the upper hand... The dynamic of the hunter and prey is reversed over and over again, and this complex, nuanced dance is the heart of the book. Duncker has written a tightly plotted thriller... a quick, instantly involving, page-turning mystery, written in fluid, lyrical prose, and populated with characters that are flawed and human and complete." --Boston Globe "A literary pleasure of the highest order... A legal mystery of uncommon style and intelligence." --Shelf Awareness "[A] haunting novel...the prose [is] vibrant." --Publishers Weekly "I can only use the words extraordinary to describe this book. I will remember it for a long time. Recommended for readers of music, astronomy and literary fiction and fans of Louise Penny, Fred Vargas and Arturo Perez-Reverte." --Mystery Salon, "Killer Book" recommendation "Haunting and exceptional... I can only use the words extraordinary to describe this book. I will remember it for a long time." --Mystery Salon "Enigmatic." --Booklist
