Critical Praise

“Wow. An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart...and what a voice she has.”
   — Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller GONE GIRL

“First time is the charm for Masterman's masterful debut, featuring 59-year-old retired FBI Agent Brigid Quinn, still tough, still determined, and still smarting to catch that one killer who got away. An author to watch. A thriller that must be read.”
   — Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of CATCH ME and LOVE YOU MORE

“Blown away. What else can I tell you? Brigid Quinn is a heroine to cheer for, and Masterman writes like an angel who has seen far too many ungodly things.”
   — Linwood Barclay, author of the New York Times bestseller NO TIME FOR GOODBYE

“One of the most memorable FBI agents since Clarice Starling as well as a killer debut thriller.”            
   — Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Brigid is a marvelous character, and her skills are fearsome for someone her age… fans of Lisa Gardner and Tess Gerritsen will love this book.”
   — Booklist

“A scorching, humane first novel that reads as if Masterman’s been sitting for a long time on some truly ugly secrets.”
