What the Critics Say

"It's a mystery how Yorke keeps turning out these fine, carefully constructed psychological thrillers, but readers should be glad she does." (Booklist)

Long dull disappointment

I loved Yorke's Dead in the Morning but this book turns out to be a lusterless long read with lots of detail and nothing really happening. The main character is annoyingly meek and though this is fully intentional and a psychological portrait with many messages, it makes it difficult to relate to anyone through these tedious pages. What kept me going is the delirious Britishness of it all; something that makes for "comfort reading" for me.
