Review quote

"Immensely readable, bright...P.D. James is capable of handling her themes with astonishing clarity: not to simplify things for us, but to give us the crisp honesty of her novelistic perceptions."--"The New York Times Book Review ""Subtle, rich, allusive, and positively Shakespearean."--"The New York Times ""A superbly crafted psychological story of a search for identity, revenge and redemption."--"Toronto Star ""As suspenseful and tautly written as any of her detective stories -- the psychological twists and turns will tantalize the reader as cunningly as a well-paced clue."--"The New York Times ""P.D. James steps into territory occupied by Truman Capote, Shelby Foote, Carson McCullers, even Henry James."--"The New Republic ""A superior thriller--tingling with suspense, difficult to put down."--"Newsday ""A transfixing psychological thriller filled with searing suspense, a multi-twist plot and a remorseless eye for our sometimes monstrous needs and drives -- It packs a powerful wallop."--"Mademoiselle"show more
