* "[The game is] orchestrated so cunningly that rare indeed will be the reader who figures it out early...You can't deny Lyga's ambition to craft the most serious (and bloodiest) crime series yet for teen readers."
—Booklist, starred review
"The main differentiator between this and adult thrillers is the age of the protagonists. As such, it's a riveting story for any reader capable of handling the violence, as Lyga juggles multiple points of view and elegant shocks and twists...The character arcs are as fascinating as the gruesome murders."
Barry Lyga is the author of several acclaimed young adult novels, including Bang, After the Red Rain, the I Hunt Killers trilogy, and his debut, The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl. Barry lives and writes in New York City.
