“Jeong expertly inches up the tension in this crafty, creepy story.” —The Guardian, The Best Recent Crime Novels

“[A] superlative thriller . . . Readers who enjoy grappling with the issue of a narrator’s reliability will relish Yu-jin, who believes that ‘being true to life wasn’t the only way to tell a story.’” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Jeong slowly winds readers up with taut, high-tension wire . . . A creepy, insidious, blood-drenched tale in which nothing is quite what it seems.”
Kirkus Reviews

This book will pull you in; as you devour it, you may find yourself chilled to the bone by its unflinching depiction of the evil coiled within us.”

—Kyung-Sook Shin, bestselling and Man Asian Literary Prize-winning author of Please Look After Mom
