Review quote

Alison Gaylin has always been a great writer and storyteller-and this is her best book yet. The Collective is a riveting and timely thriller with a knockout of an ending. Don't miss this one." * Harlan Coben * I can't stop thinking about this book. * Alafair Burke * A layered, engrossing and nerve shattering thriller. * Lisa Unger * Alison Gaylin's The Collective is an astonishing feat. In the tradition of Ira Levin's unforgettable social thrillers (Rosemary's Baby, Stepford Wives), it's a nerve-shredding, emotionally harrowing ride that also speaks volumes about our current moment, the dangers of our digital world, the potency of female rage. Don't miss it. * Megan Abbott * Feel like the book of the moment, the year. Clever, compassionate and all too believable. * Laura Lippman * The Collective is a propulsive, emotional conspiracy thriller powered by the all-consuming fire of maternal rage. Without pretty moralizing, Gaylin shows both the destruction and visceral satisfaction that come with revenge. I am a peaceful person, but also a mother, and I read the whole book with a killer's heart. * Steph Cha * Alison Gaylin's The Collective is a dark and sinister ride that goes straight to the heart of revenge. Not just what it means, but what it costs. This is a highly entertaining, and terrifying, read. * Peter Swanson *
