“In Reznik’s debut novel, a woman confronts long-buried secrets when an old college friend commits suicide. . . . While effective as a page turner, the novel also tells a timeless, universal tale of a woman’s journey toward self-acceptance. An exciting tale of past crimes and dangerous friendships.” –Kirkus Reviews
“I love a mystery and I love stories about the late 60′s/early 70′s and this book has both. Really fun read.” –Barbara Gaines, Executive Producer, The Late Show with David Letterman
