Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"The Weber-Coben pairing makes for a super suspenseful listen.… [Steven] Weber is perfectly in step with the pace of the action, which is interspersed with touching relationship scenes and terrifying depictions of the vulnerability that arises from our reliance on social media for our facts. AudioFile Magazine
“The Weber-Coben pairing makes for a super suspenseful listen…Weber masterfully gives Hester a big attitude and a strong New York accent. His acting talents also shine in his performance of sulky, awkward teenagers and class bullies. Weber is perfectly in step with the pace of the action. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Coben knows how to weave a compelling story with intriguing characters, and Wilde is one of his best…The narrative veers into such unexpected directions that even a true thriller aficionado will not see the multiple surprises the ending delivers.” Associated Press
“This riveting, action-packed novel…is intense from the first page, with dramatic plot twists eerily reminiscent of current political and social scandals.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Coben is excellent, as always, at showing the perils of the everyday and the bit-by-bit escalations of cruelty.” Booklist
