"This completely unique and haunting tale sucks in the reader on a breathless ride to see what becomes of our tortured heroine."

"[A]n  intense read about a meeting with destiny that will appeal to readers interested in dark, psychological tales."

"My heart is still racing from the intensity of this novel . . . What a fantastic first novel from Coco Richter!" 

"Coco Richter has written a spell-binding story about an expat couple in Hong Kong. She brings Hong Kong to life in her pages, and her characters are deep and sympathetic, even as their relationship unravels."

From the South China Morning Post (April 2015), "Once the plot finally gets going, the suspense builds, climaxing in a genuinely strange and unnerving conclusion. A curious, uneven but promising first book."
