RaveLibrary JournalFans of British mysteries will love this debut. The setup of the characters is leisurely, but once the story gets rolling, it is difficult to put down. This is one that readers may not figure out fully, if at all, in advance of the denouement, but the author ties all the secrets together in a most satisfying reveal.

PositiveLibrary JournalJust as readers become accustomed to the adventures of Szapiro as written by Mojzesz, a twist occurs that shows that not everything is as it has been depicted ... This intelligent and literary novel about the Jewish situation in Poland is presented from an original vantage point. It will be of interest to readers of pre-Holocaust literature and books about the Jewish situation in Europe between World Wars.
PositiveLibrary JournalReaders who enjoy historical fiction, told with fine literary style, will be delighted. Nesbit undertook considerable historical documentary research to get the details right, and the results should also appeal to anyone with an interest in colonial history.
RaveLibrary JournalBarclay’s latest combines an engrossing, fast-moving, well-twisted modern-day plot with believable characters ... Fans of psychological thrillers and the author’s previous books will love this. Warning: it might leave some readers a bit uncomfortable next time they enter an elevator.
