`The book is suffused with the grey, ambient unease in which Oates specialises; she's one of our creepiest writers, a kind of feminist Poe with a working-class sensibility' Guardian`Another step in Oates's progress towards the title of Great American Novelist.' Independent`There are...glimpses of brilliance, and Oates is sympathetic to the animals we all, at times, become' Daily Mail`An absorbing study of lust, trust, and an unsolved murder, Oates's gritty new mystery explores the attraction between the son of the victim and daughter of the accused' Good Housekeeping`Her prose is peerless and her ability to make you think as she re-invents genres is unique. Few writers move so effortlessly from the gothic tale to the psychological thriller to the epic family saga to the lyrical novella. Even fewer authors can so compellingly and entertainingly tell a story.' Jackie McGlone, Scotland on Sunday`Novelists such as John Updike, Philip Roth, Tom Wolfe and Norman Mailer slug it out for the title of the Great American Novelist. But maybe they're wrong. Maybe, just maybe, the Great American Novelist is a woman.' Herald
