Quotes & Awards

  • “Martínez’s novel is full of explanations and parried literary thrusts, culminating in a growing sense of understanding that order and chaos aren’t yin and yang but mirror images of each other.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “The chilling story of a woman’s descent into madness.”

    New York Daily News

  • “This novel is a meditation on chance, on revenge, on the power of literature, on randomness and causality, an on the awesome strength of human emotions, whether love or hatred.”

    Independent (London)

  • “[A] fine novel of psychological suspense…This riveting tale will appeal to readers of literary fiction and thriller fans alike.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[A] compelling psycholiterary mystery…Martínez, a PhD in mathematics, mixed math math in The Oxford Murders. This time it’s murder and fiction writing—and competing versions of reality; as before, it’s a winning combination.”

    Kirkus Reviews
