"[Features] one of those . . . climactic epiphanies so characteristic of Cook." 08/01/2012 "Philip's own odyssey--to find the meaning behind his friend's death--is one of the many pleasures of Mr. Cook's intelligent and elegant work. Eventually Philip adds a postscript to Julian's observation on unsolved crimes: 'Solutions . . . can be haunting, too.'" - Tom Nolan 08/25/2012 "[A] striking example of a suspense writer working at the top of his form, and an agreeable diversion for those who enjoy a bit of style with their substance." - Nicholas Basbanes 08/30/2012
