"A juicy murder mystery based on the provocative theme of parental love and protectiveness-and their dangerous outer limits."
-- The New York Time Book Review

"Elizabeth George is one of the best pure writers in the suspense field; her prose soars and sings, her people are shrewdly observed and deftly drawn…Top-flight entertainment."
-- The San Diego Union-Tribune

"[A] layered, intricate mystery…deftly plotted, highly atmospheric"
-- Publishers Weekly

"It almost seems blasphemous to say it, but I think Elizabeth George outdoes Sayers…[She] puts together a totally satisfying mystery experience."
-- Denver Post

"Ever since George, an American, began poaching in the British territory of P.D. James and Ruth Rendall five years ago, she has proved herself adept at thoughtfully and compassionately exploring the shades of gray of human behavior."
-- The Orlando Sentinel

"One of the year's 10 best crime novels!"
-- Los Angeles Times

"Elizabeth George's book fell as crafted and cared for as the lovely green twisting hedged mazes sometimes found on large British estates."
-- Star Tribune
