NZ Review A cracking good read * Promoting Crime Fiction * Truly terrifying * Woman's Way * Exceptional . . . an engrossing story * Publishers Weekly * The plot twists and narrative conjuring tricks continued to the penultimate page . . . extra icing on what was already a very enjoyable and well-made cake * Crime Fiction Lover * Richard Montanari's elegiac tone takes the curse off Shutter Man, a blood-drenched thriller about a group of imperfectly domesticated boys who came from the same blighted neighborhood and grew up to become criminals and killers - and cops . . . Gripping * New York Times *
