Gripping... Koch uses language like a stethoscope, so that we can hear the beating hearts of his characters and their visceral feelings of envy, love, fear and hatred * Observer *
Sex and menace are at the pulsating heart of this emotionally intelligent thriller * Irish Mail on Sunday *
Caustic...Poisonous... I couldn't stop reading * Washington Post *
You'll wonder how far you would go for your children, and again you'll wonder what you might be capable of once the rules have been broken... Viciously funny, tense, and disturbing, this is one holiday you won't forget. -- David Vann
