Review:

"At the start of this superior psychological thriller from Thriller Award — winner Smith (Child 44), the narrator, a Londoner known only as Daniel, receives a phone call from his father, who has retired with his wife to a farm in Sweden. The father tells Daniel that his mother is in the hospital. For months, she has been 'imagining things — terrible, terrible things.' Before Daniel can fly to Sweden, his father calls again to inform him that she persuaded the doctors to authorize her discharge and has disappeared. As Daniel struggles to accept that news, his mother phones to announce that she's flying to Heathrow and that everything his father has told him 'is a lie.' When she arrives, she offers a complex tale to buttress her conviction that she has been plotted against, leaving Daniel uncertain as to whom and what to believe. Smith keeps the reader guessing up to the powerfully effective resolution that's refreshingly devoid of contrivances. Agent: Felicity Blunt, Curtis Brown (U.K.). (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
