Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A very dark, twisty thriller…Ms. Hitchcock has penned a thought-provoking book, which should please lovers of books like The Da Vinci Code…I found the book hard to put down.” Fresh Fiction
“The novel is never dull.” Publishers Weekly
“May be the epitome of the feminist thriller…This provocative, compelling, and unsettling novel brilliantly explores the misogyny of Western culture and particularly of the Catholic Church. The graphic violence may offend some readers, but this ought to be one of the most talked-about books of the year. Recommended for all fiction collections.” Library Journal
“Hitchcock’s clear, straightforward prose and civilized, articulate protagonists…keep the pages turning.” Kirkus Reviews
