Booklist Review: "The sense of foreboding begins with the opening description of the Greer mansion overlooking the ocean on the outskirts of Claire Lake, Oregon. It continues as Shea Collins pulls back layer after layer of truth and fiction surrounding the murders of two men 40 years earlier in 1977. Beth Greer was arrested for the crimes but acquitted. By day, Shea is a receptionist in a doctor's office, but in the evening she researches and blogs about cold cases, including the Greer case. When Greer comes into the doctor's office, Shea recognizes her and, on impulse, follows her as she leaves. Beth unexpectedly allows an interview, the first since the events years before, and then grants access to other principals in the case. Told in vignettes that jump back and forth in time, the multilayered story seems baffling at first. Why would the young, beautiful, and rich Beth Greer commit murder? There was a witness but no hard evidence. As Shea proceeds, she discovers the unsettling truth, with supernatural hooks into the present day. St. James' signature ability to tell connecting stories across decades (established in both The Broken Girls, 2018, and The Sun Down Motel, 2020) is on display here, too, in a gripping tale that will appeal to fans of crime fiction tinged with the supernatural."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in 2017, this chilling paranormal thriller from bestseller St. James (The Sun Down Motel) stars 29-year-old Shea Collins, a medical receptionist in Claire Lake, Ore., by day, who by night runs the Book of Cold Cases, a blog devoted to unsolved true crimes. One morning at work, Shea recognizes one of the patients as Beth Greer, an elusive, affluent woman who was a suspect in the Lady Killer murders in 1977. Two Claire Lake men were shot in cold blood, and though a witness saw Beth fleeing the scene, she insisted she was innocent and was acquitted at trial. Since the crimes are still unsolved, Shea gets Beth's permission to interview her. They often meet at Beth's mansion, where Beth reveals her side of the story through vivid flashbacks involving her troubled adolescence and adulthood. Meanwhile, Shea becomes increasingly uneasy in the house and suspects it may be haunted. St. James keeps the suspense high, though some readers will wonder why she reveals a major plot twist in the middle of the book. Horror fans will want to check this out.
