Quotes & Awards

  • “This novel of harrowing suspense and wrenching resolution should earn King plenty of accolades.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “King works layers within layers like carved ivory spheres and makes a tale that holds one taut on every page.”


  • “An intensely suspenseful look at different forms of emotional strain and physical abuse…She evokes the remote islands of the Pacific Northwest as smoothly as the humid, war-torn jungles of Vietnam. Powerful and exceptionally well written.”

    Library Journal

  • “A gripping, intricately plotted psychological thriller, full of subtle twists…Multidimensional characters at every level and complex plotting earn the true application of that overused tag psychological thriller.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Melissa | 1/8/2011

    " So very different from her other books. Fairly good suspense, but the section on Vietnam was too much. It was well written and enthralling, but it was so different than the rest of the book, it felt like I was reading a different story. "

    " This was a hard book to start and I almost gave up on it. I am glad I did not. I actually enjoyed it. The Vietnam War part was hard to get through. I will have to read Folly now. "
