The New York TimesThis material is so bleak, and so miserably entrancing, that all Mr. Parry really needs to do is set out the facts and, essentially, stay out of the way. Early on, however, I feared he was going to step on his own journalism by overwriting…I was wrong to worry. Mr. Parry finds his voice, and it's a sturdy one. His book becomes not merely an exemplary piece of reportage but a sustained and quietly profound work of moral inquiry as well. It becomes ominous in ways that go well beyond the calculated shock value of its cover.
