Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Carey's (The Girl with All the Gifts, 2014) latest is an intense, supernaturally tinged psychological suspense story featuring alternating narration by two deeply troubled women, both sympathetic, if not trustworthy. Liz is a single mom who, in a brutal fight with her abusive ex-husband, feels as if someone else is taking over her body and mind as she defends herself. Fran, 16, is getting by a decade after being the victim of a kidnapping and attempted murder, though her frequent hallucinations and imaginary best friend, a fox, may indicate otherwise. The anxiety-fueled story is filled with violence, darkness, and the ghosts living at the edge of reality. Liz and Fran are fighting forces that they don't understand, to save themselves and those they love, but would anyone believe the truth? Although Carey has his own built-in audience, this title is of a different breed; suggest it to fans of other tension-driven psychological thrillers that lap at the shore of horror, like those by Gillian Flynn, Sarah Pinborough, or Paul Tremblay.--Becky Spratford Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A single mother battles the seduction of her dark side in this gripping and easily devoured novel from Carey (The Boy on the Bridge). Liz Kendall's ex-husband, Marc, is a violent abuser, and gentle Liz is forced to physically retaliate against him in order to protect herself and her two children, six-year-old Molly and 16-year-old Zac. Following that incident, a newfound rage boils over each time she is under pressure, and this side of her gradually develops into a vicious second personality called Beth. While seeking help from a doctor, her family meets Fran Watts, a kidnapping victim who's grappling with hallucinations and memory loss. Fran, sick of feeling debilitated, befriends Zac and enlists him to help her research her kidnapper and restore her shaky memory. Fran's own coping mechanism arrives in the form of an imaginary friend who directly opposes Fran's confrontation of her painful past. When Marc threatens Liz again, Beth expels Liz and takes control, with devastating consequences. Both Liz and Fran must find a way to bridge the fissures of their minds before Beth causes irreparable damage. Carey's mastery of tension and diversity of voice will keep readers engaged until the well-earned ending, and his handling of mental illness is nuanced without romanticizing or sensationalizing trauma. This intense thriller shows human nature in all its grimness and glory. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
