Marilyn StasioA suspense story has to take over your mind, leaving you disoriented (and feeling a little foolish) when you look up at the end. Jesse Kellerman makes this act of self-hypnosis easy, mainly because he understands the mechanics of obsessive thought…Being the kind of writer who collects voices the way beachcombers pick up buckets of shells, Kellerman revels in the verbal cacophony of a gallery opening and the brittle badinage of a sales pitch. But the nasal tones of Ethan's narrative voice reveal a lonely little rich boy who needs something to substitute for a distant father's love. Listen to that voice long enough and it becomes as mesmerizing as the radiant horrors of Victor's psychotically deranged art.
