Reviews

Exhilarating [...] Becky Cooper masterfully uncovers the story of Harvard undergrad Jane Britton * Vogue *
Exhilarating and seductive ... Haunting, fascinating, and surprising. Cooper will keep you riveted.
Searching, atmospheric and ultimately entrancing ... A vivid account of a notorious murder at Harvard, and a meditation on the stories that we tell ourselves about violence ... With a deft touch, she interrogates not just the evidence, witnesses and suspects, but her own biases and assumptions, as well.
Stunning ... This vivid, graceful story is as much about obsession and a search for belonging as it is about the romance of exploration, the unglamorous logistics of scientific fieldwork, the secretiveness of clans, the cruelty of chance, and the doggedness inherent to the best narrative journalism.
Top drawer investigative reporting. Riveting. A refreshing reason to sacrifice sleep. -- Sarah Jessica Parker
