"[Lamb] knows just how to let the details of a tragedy unfold without decoration or commentary. He's a master at the kind of direct, unadorned narrative that brings these events alive in all their visceral power. . . . wholly sympathetic, deeply moving." —Ron Charles, Washington Post Book World

"Every character is rendered with vivid, utterly convincing depth. . . . A heck of a page-turner." —Dallas Morning News

"A page-turner. . . . Lamb remains a storyteller at the top of his game."
Craig Wilson, USA Today



"Lamb . . . has delivered a tour de force, his best yet. A" Entertainment Weekly
