Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Wow. An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart...and what a voice. Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
Masterman lives up to her name in this masterly combination of compelling character and plot. Library Journal (starred)
One of the most memorable FBI agents since Clarice Starling. Publishers Weekly (starred, Pick of the Week)
When the nominations are made for the best crime-novel debut of the year, we should be hearing [Masterman's] name again. The Washington Post
"Fans of the Brigid Quinn mystery series will be delighted to hear Suzanne Toren's narration of the third book. ...Toren has a knack for realistic pacing in the midst of intense conversation and leaves the listener guessing whether Coleman is emotionally unstable or simply very forceful in her efforts to exonerate the man convicted of killing his family. Quinn may be feisty and capable, but Toren also portrays her vulnerability in dealing with her father's imminent death. AudioFile
Pulse-quickening...scorching...invigorating. Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“The most original new female character to anchor a crime series in years.” New York Times on Fear the Darkness
