"King is a deft and literate writer whose work never fails to please....A superior novel."
-- The San Diego Union-Tribune
"A dense and suspenseful tale. Memorable."
-- Publishers Weekly
"A richly feminist book in which King demonstrates again her remarkable skills in sinking the reader into a special culture/community where her many-layered stories unfold."
-- Booknews from The Poisoned Pen
"King is very, very good at looking society in the face and reflecting on the way it is now."
-- The Boston Sunday Globe
"As with all Laurie King's books, the facts tell only the smallest part of the truth....King exposes the issue with intensity and passion. It's hard to turn away even if you wanted to."
