"This highly entertaining and squirm-inducing short novel that Frances herself might reductively pitch to her boss in the books department as Howards End meets All About Eve.….A breezy, lacerating first novel."New York Times Book Review

"Harriet Lane writes with style, wrapping her suspenseful debut in lovely bits of gently creepy description, as well as delicious social critique…a fast, sharp read."Boston Globe

"A deft and lively brain-twist of a thriller for which the only word that seems apropos is ‘spellbinding.’"Chicago Tribune

"Controlled and precise, Lane’s writing bewitches with its undertones of implied meanings and carefully hidden secrets. This is a gem."Kirkus Review
