    Oh man, this was good I devoured this from the very first Frankenstein meets Brat Farrar meets Rebecca meets Psycho Basically, a beautiful concoction of creep mixed with suspense and throw in a little old Hollywood glam that seemed to have been tailor made for me.

    Picked up the galley and loved it A Millennial Noir, full of swirling language around isolation and performative identity Had some plot issues, but the strength of the voice wasthan enough to keep me involved Very strong debut novel.
