Review

A haunting, compelling and brilliant piece of fiction The Times So irresistible and seductive it's almost a guilty pleasure Guardian Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She's dense, she's allusive. She's a gorgeous storyteller -- Stephen King Takes my breath away -- Ruth Rendell Brilliant and compulsive Evening Standard A huge, mesmerizing, galloping read Vanity Fair A page-turner in the true sense Independent Brilliant Sunday Times
