• "There are echoes of Nabokov in this in this tense and poetic mystery"

  • "Crisp yet lyrical, simple yet intelligent...haunting, shocking, and tense...Readers looking for thought-provoking literary fiction can't do any better than this"

  • "A psychological suspense thriller invested with life-and-death gravitas"

    Seattle Times
  • "With Farfalla, Booth has a created a rich, conflicted antihero whose clever rationalizations mask a soul weary with self-doubt"

    Boston Globe
  • "The lazy, languid setting is an eerily effective backdrop for the fresh and beguiling murder intrigue...With first-rate characters and a gradual buildup of suspense, Booth constructs a focused, tightly written novel"
