"A taut neo-noir thriller that is simultaneously an engaging page-turner and a literary contemporary novel, showcasing a visually arresting style..... There are passages of such startling brilliance that the words seem to rise from the page.... The reader is constantly torn between the desire to savour each paragraph and the urgency to turn the page."
"With his exceptional eye for detail, Hutzulak immerses us in some vividly painful scenes.... makes us feel we're glimpsing an intimate secret, shadowing someone on a trip we're not sure we want to experience, even vicariously."
"Hutzulak at his best creates scenes shimmering with presence, in which nothing is extraneous to his purpose. Even things such as an image seen in passing... resonate as emblems of something essential."
