Lundrigan’s skill­fully bal­anced blend of 
psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller and haunt­ing coming-of-age story is infused with creepy, small-town
atmos­pheric sus­pense.… [Her] writ­ing is both
ele­gant and darkly humor­ous, deliv­er­ing bareknuckle social com­men­tary that will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Karin Fos­sum, and Laura Lippman.
