Powerful and frightening tale with numerous twists
An effective tale that is well performed. Psychological study of several damaged souls. The potential danger facing a young girl becomes the foundation for a richly imagined study in character. Although there are numerous twist, this book and most of Millar's work depends on character study more than detection. This is crime fiction at its best.
