What the Critics Say

"An ending worthy of Hitchcock....The brutal denouement will shake readers lulled by the tale's cozy trappings, but those familiar with Patricia Highsmith's particular brand of sinister storytelling will recognize the mayhem Fielding so cunningly unleashes." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author keeps the tension high and the pages turning, creating a chillingly paranoid atmosphere." (Booklist)

    ""Okay" Fielding ..."

    I'd rate this book as just "Okay." Much, much longer than needed to tell this story. Have patience!

    This mystery kept me spellbound from beginning to end. Very compelling. You just don't know what will happen next.
