"Twisted River" is a superb thriller gripping, surprising, and terrifically rewarding. Chris Pavone, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Expats"
Evocative and richly detailed, "Twisted River" is a page-turning mystery about the tragic consequences that result when the tightly held secrets of two families collide. Kimberly McCreight, author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Reconstructing Amelia" and "Where They Found Her"
MacDonald's dark and twisted tale of American tourists caught up in recession-hit Ireland will change the way you look at house swaps forever Alex Marwood, Edgar Award winning author of "The Wicked Girls"
MacDonald toys with the reader, leading right then feinting left with plot twists that genuinely surprise. Infidelity, deception, revenge, and murder all come into play, but the big thrill here is the constant undermining of assumptions. "Kirkus Reviews"
A skillfully wrought thriller that exposes the dangers of secrecy. "Booklist"
MacDonald develops her twin stories with masterly control of mood and scene, setting you up for jolts that, even if you somehow see them coming, lose nothing in sinister shock value. "The Chicago Tribune""
