FOUR STARRED REVIEWS, INCLUDING KIRKUS, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY AND BOOKLIST
“…Reid’s preternaturally creepy debut unfolds like a bad dream, the kind from which you desperately want to wake up yet also want to keep dreaming so you can see how everything fits together—or, rather, falls apart…Reid’s tightly crafted tale toys with the nature of identity and comes by its terror honestly, building a wall of intricately layered psychological torment so impenetrable it’s impossible to escape.” –Kirkus, starred review
“Nonfiction author Reid (The Truth About Luck) fuses suspense with philosophy, psychology, and horror in his unsettling first novel set in an unspecified locale…Capped with an ending that will shock and chill, this twisty tale invites multiple readings.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The construct of this book is brilliant and unusual and should appeal to fans of psychological thrillers, as well as to some horror fans. A dark and compelling debut novel, it is a most uncomfortable read but utterly unputdownable.” –Booklist, starred review
COUNTLESS RAVE REVIEWS
“This is a deliciously frightening novel, Reid has a light, idiosyncratic touch but never lets his vice-like grip of suspense slacken for a second. Once finished, you will be hard pressed not to start the whole terrifying journey all over again.” –The Independent
“The boldest and most original literary thriller to appear in some time. . . In addition to Cronenberg, the ghost of Stephen King hovers over these pages.” –Chicago Tribune
“Your dread and unease will mount with every passing page of this relationship tale.” –Entertainment Weekly
