"In lushly evocative prose, Lewis spins a tale rich with menace and foreboding." The New York Times

I didn't finish it. The story dragged and I just couldn't get into the woman's story.

This is a literary psychological thriller, with a killer plot and well drawn characters. One of the few books I've read more than once. Haunting, hallucinatory and surprising. Your probably going to say to yourself "Why haven't I read this before?" Jim Lewis nails it this time, pitch-perfect dialogue at a movie-like pace.

I really liked this book. It might have been where I was in my life, but it really hit home.

Some great lines though: "you're right, he admitted. the truth is, since I was young all I've ever wanted to do was to make a revolution so subtle that no one ever noticed".
