Product description

Review

Snatched in broad daylight. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"Utterly engrossing . . . skilfully constructed narrative. . . . Rather than creating a simple case of goodies and baddies, Maguire subtly examines the complexity of the human personality and what leads somebody to feel destructive. This hugely chilling and evocative story, mixing lyrical language and brutal events, is told with great psychological acuity." --Sydney Morning Herald

"A harrowing, fascinating, compelling work from an accomplished and thoughtful Australian writer who uses the vehicle of a young woman's death to question and explore society's treatment of women, the everyday violence it condones and its intrusive fascination with the murder of pretty young women." --Australian

"This is far more than a page-turning crime drama, though it is also that. Maguire's focus is on those left behind, the often unacknowledged victims of violent crimes. . . . It is a nuanced portrait of a group of flawed characters, male and female, responding to a tragedy. . . . Above all this is a powerful and provocative examination of grief and, in Chris, Emily Maguire has created a character who resounds in the imagination." --Newtown Review of Books --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
