“Sizzling … original … hypnotic … a page turner.”
“Cleverly diabolic twists … a high impact story … that’s likely to keep readers riveted to the page.”
Publishing News (UK)
“Outstandingly well-written … compelling.”
Hackensack, NJ Record
“After giving readers a first-chapter glimpse of the killer’s primal trauma (without revealing the culprit’s identity), Margolis keeps the suspense level high as he gradually reveals the psychosis of the killer …”
“A thoroughly chilling and engrossing story.”
“Margolis’s strong suit is his ability to juggle an intricate plot and a number of major characters while he keeps his narrative taut and makes every detail count.”
” … well-paced and well-plotted. The twists and turns don’t stop, and wait till you read about the secret that unmasks the murderer. The main character might be a hypnotist, but her creator sure knows how to cast a spell with words.”
“Margolis expertly pulls all our strings and keeps us guessing right up until the final moment.”
An electrifying tale of psychological suspense with a brilliantly original twist, in the best tradition of Mary Higgins Clark and Joy Fielding.
At Julia Mallet’s 35th birthday celebration, a harmless party game goes terribly awry. The next day Julia’s neighbor is brutally and senselessly slain — the first victim of a bloodthirsty psychopath who will kill again and again. And the maniac has left a calling card that only Julia can read — the result of a post-hypnotic suggestion she inadvertently lodged in the subconscious minds of her closest friends the night before. And now Julia knows without a doubt that one of the six people she loves and trusts most in the world is a murderer.
