Our  librarian pal Robin Beerbower applauded our comparison of Phil Hogan’s totally creep-fabulous A PLEASURE AND A CALLING to Patricia Highsmith’s THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY…  And now both Publishers Weekly and Booklist gave it starred reviews… My dear librarians, don’t miss the boat on this two-starred gem!

“British writer Hogan’s fourth novel is a gripping psychological thriller that pegs out the creep-o-meter with its chilling, original plot.  Hogan’s Mr. Heming is a monumentally diabolical character—the fact that he narrates the story further ups both the stakes and the tension. Readers won’t soon forget this first-rate, white-knuckle suspense novel.”–Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review

“Delicious and addicting. William Heming joins the ranks of unforgettable, unreliable narrators in this gloriously creepy novel of psychological suspense.”–Booklist  starred review
