Review Quotes




"Hausmann's novel has the feel of a nightmare, unfolding at breakneck speed and exposing the terrifying vulnerability of a woman who wants nothing more than to be loved."
--Sunday Times

"Fine story crafting and impressive character depth combine to produce chilling, realistic complexity."
--Booklist

But Hausmann's dark new psychological thriller surpasses the earlier one in keeping the reader guessing...Hausmann manages to seamlessly tie all these threads and timelines together for a story that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat...By the end it will all make sense and you'll be stunned. It's seldom I recommend a book filled with mostly unlikeable characters, but if you like intelligently told, twisty tales, this one is for you."
--Deadly Pleasures

"In present-day Germany, a woman burdened with the darkest of secrets from her brutal childhood becomes an unwitting participant in a fatal game of murder and deceit...Feverish, relentlessly tense..."
--Kirkus
