Very cleverly plotted psycho thriller
Millar is very good at bringing the reader into the mins of her characters. In this instance two young girls are protagonists. She cleverly misleads the reader about how the plot will be resolved.
She also does a good job of recreating the daily life of the mid twentieth century.

Powerful and frightening tale with numerous twists
Any additional comments?
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.
