"Walters unfolds the dark complexities of Jinx's past with a master's hand, balancing sympathy and terror all the way to the introduction of a pivotal character on the very last page. (First printing of 75,000; $200,000 ad/promo budget; Literary Guild Main Selection)"
Fans who've followed Walters's meteoric rise (The Scold's Bridle, 1994, etc.) will find less Ruth Rendell than P.D. James in this tantalizing tale of Jinx Kingsley, who apparently greets the news that her fiancÇ Leo Wallader plans to leave her for her best friend Meg Harris by twice attempting suicide (auto exhaust, auto crash).
