Editorial Reviews

A deftly crafted mystery that will leave readers curious and surprised, as well as empathetic." - Publishers Weekly'[Satterlee's] debut places the solution to a mystery in the hands of someone whose own mind is a mystery, most of all to himself. Here's hoping [he] will give Daniel another go.' - Kirkus"Within a few pages, I fell in love with this book... an ambitious undertaking and couldn't have been done better." - Suspense Magazine"Satterlee's writing gifts are enormous. The author of the highly acclaimed poetry collectionBurning Wyclif, he is adept at rendering Kierkegaard's dense philosophy not only readable, but exquisite." - Mystery Scene"Because of Satterlee's skill... it seems entirely plausible and convincing... I was surprised and satisfied." - Book Pleasures "
