"Suspense never lets up...[Hogan] relies on realistic detail and his character's personal histories to build to a nail-biting climax."
"Hogan takes care with structure, with pacing, with the sound of language, and with the placement of one taut scene after another. His lean, evocative prose ...keeps his story gusting along."
"Absolutely smashing debut thriller...tense, frightening, and all too believable, a certified page-turner."
