Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Martínez’s novel is full of explanations and parried literary thrusts, culminating in a growing sense of understanding that order and chaos aren’t yin and yang but mirror images of each other.” Los Angeles Times
“The chilling story of a woman’s descent into madness.” New York Daily News
“This novel is a meditation on chance, on revenge, on the power of literature, on randomness and causality, an on the awesome strength of human emotions, whether love or hatred.” Independent (London)
“[A] fine novel of psychological suspense…This riveting tale will appeal to readers of literary fiction and thriller fans alike.” Publishers Weekly
“[A] compelling psycholiterary mystery…Martínez, a PhD in mathematics, mixed math math in The Oxford Murders. This time it’s murder and fiction writing—and competing versions of reality; as before, it’s a winning combination.” Booklist
“Martínez crafts a page-turner in which eminently believable obsession and paranoia drive dangerous behavior.” Kirkus Reviews
