"Suspense is beautifully intertwined with everyday incidents; the delicate line between belief and disbelief is faultlessly drawn."
New York Times
"A darkly brilliant tale of modern deviltry that induces the reader to believe the unbelievable. I believed it and was altogether enthralled."
"Impossible to put down. . . . Ever so subtly Levin has stripped his audience of their rational defenses and holds them in his clutches . . . the climax is an icy shock which no one will ever forget."
