The New York Times…one of the darkest, most disturbing crime stories you're likely to read this year. Like Patricia Highsmith, the queen of the night, and Ruth Rendell, the high priestess of darkness, Fossum is a grandmaster at the art of psychological terror.

But what makes Fossum so fearsome is her willingness to portray the unthinkable.
