Editorial Reviews

Some will findShoemaker's covering of every angle too exhaustive, but it is just this meticulousness that makes thisnovel stand apart. Rarely are kids in thrillers portrayed this realistically: sick with worry, horrified byinjury, and smart but not preternaturally so. Mentions of multiple characters' Christianity feel shoehornedin, but that doesn't take away from this deliberate, plausible, and gritty whodunit.' - Daniel Kraus, Booklist Review
