Reviews

A sharp, moving thriller, combining motherhood and espionage, sisterhood and sacrifice. You lose your breath for adrenalin, but also in empathy: for Tessa and Finn, in those quiet nightime moments between mother and son. As tender as it is tense. * Abigail Dean, author of GIRL A *

A chilling, gorgeously written tale of a modern community poisoned by ancient grievances . . . Berry is a beautiful writer with a sophisticated, nuanced understanding of this most complicated of places.

* New York Times *
Thrillingly good . . . Flynn Berry shows a le Carre-like flair for making you wonder what's really going on at any given moment. * Washington Post *
Even at its highest pitch, Ms. Berry's novel remains a human-centered story that closely examines the behavior of siblings, babies, mothers and friends...a beguiling thriller that's hard to put down. * Wall Street Journal *
Flynn Berry has written a thriller for the ages. * Entertainment Weekly *
Taut and passionate. . . full of threat and heartbreak. . . Northern Spy will be a hit for readers of Dublin noir and tartan noir. . . Denise Mina and Tana French readers can also find familiar ground - but so in fact can any readers who treasure a well-plotted mystery with a powerful sense of how place and the near past can force a person to cross the lines they once felt were sacred. * New York Journal of Books *
Emotional and intellectually engaging * Crime Time *
