Critic reviews

"Taut, fast and relentless... A ride worth taking." -- San Francisco Chronicle.

"Keeps the reader hooked... From the creepy first chapters... to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the money-and-run finale." -- The Wall Street Journal.

"Irresistable... seizes the reader on the opening page and propels him through 400 more." -- Peter Prescott, Newsweek

If you're familiar with the film but don’t know much about its literary inspiration, read on.
