“Karen Dietrich can stop your heart with a sentence.”
–Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

A thrilling nature-versus-nurture psychological suspense novel about a daughter trying to deny her worst impulses and distance herself from her violent and dangerous father.

  • "Dietrich has a writing style that feels like a breath of fresh air... A fine psychological thriller."
    Booklist, Booklist on GIRL AT THE EDGE
  • "Dietrich has a writing style that feels like a breath of fresh air in a genre that sometimes suffers from a sense of sameness, and her characters and their dialogue are exquisitely rendered. A fine psychological thriller."
  • "Original metaphors and nice descriptions bolster this extended monologue of a potential killer... Dietrich's assured prose bodes well for the future."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Karen Dietrich can stop your heart with a sentence."
