“An impressively meta work that delivers the pleasures of true-crime while skewering it.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 “This masterwork of suspense is as careful with its sharp takes as it is with the bread crumbs it slowly drops on the way to its stunning end. It operates perfectly on many levels, resulting in a must-read for true crime addicts and experimental fiction fans alike.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE DOOMSDAY MOTHER: Lori Vallow, Chad Daybell, and the End of an American Family by John Glatt

“Despite readers knowing the grim ending from the start, Glatt’s extensive research, including interviews with family members, makes this a white-knuckle page-turner…must reading for true crime fans.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
