"This book will have you sitting up in bed at 3:00 AM, reading furiously and chewing your nails. Do not pick it up if your bed-partner (assuming you have one) is bothered by your reading light. Once the story gets rolling, it is impossible to put down as it drives you inexorably to its truly shocking conclusion. Shocking, really, and you can tell by my reading list that I'm not easily shocked. To top it off, the 'about the author' page contains almost as much tragedy, plot, and surprise as the story itself. I won't tell you how the novel ends, but I'll tell you the last word ? E-X-P-L-O-S-I-O-N !"
