About the Author

Sara Gran grew up in Brooklyn and graduated from Tufts University with a B.A. in cultural anthropology in 1993. Her first novel, Saturn’s Return to New York, was published in 2001, and is being currently being developed into a film by Domenica Cameron-Scorcese. Her second novel, Come Closer, was published in 2003 to overwhelming critical favor. Praised by Bret Easton Ellis as “one of the most precise and graceful pieces of fiction I’ve read in a long time,” it has since been published in eight other countries and has been optioned by The Weinstein Company/ Dimension Films.

Her short stories have appeared in Atlantic Unbound the online home of the Atlantic Monthly, Small Spiral Notebook, Haypenny, and the Land-Grant College Review.

Before making a living as a writer, Ms. Gran worked as a bookseller in New York City. In 2004, she moved to New Orleans; her building, constructed in the 1800s, was among the few not damaged or flooded by Hurricane Katrina. She is currently at work on her fourth novel, set in New Orleans.

I was so impressed with the writing of this. James M. Cain brought back to life in female form. Slick, tight, smart,tough. Highly recommended.

This book kept me interested, but I never felt immersed in NYC or the time period that it took place. It's a good quick read.

Drugs, Sex, and Murder contributes to this great story. Great descriptive imagery and top notch storyline. A superb mystery and also a must read. Two thumbs up. A great representation of irony. An ex-drug addict gets hired to search for a young college girl but an ironic twist turns the story into a must read. I believe it is a great book that every age level will enjoy. As you read you will enjoy each scene, each character's point of view as if it were a five star movie.

A quick read that held my attention. I like this retro type of book. I don't think it is giving away the ending to say it was not what I expected and not what I would have written. I guess a surprise ending is not a bad thing in most cases. Otherwise the characters were believable and interesting.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one.This story captured me from page 1. This story is real and alive. I loved the ending- what an unsuspected turn of events.

This is a nice book...if you're on a road trip or taking a transatlantic flight. Despite the raving reviews,it didn't seem a 'page-turner' to me. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the book but I was 75% through the book when the first 'totally shocking' twist happened. If you can get it for three bucks like I did, go for it:)
