  • A brilliant and extraordinary book.

    Philippe Sands
  • Exhilarating ... Becky Cooper masterfully uncovers the story of Harvard undergrad Jane Britton

  • Ambitious ... A highly sophisticated investigation of a cold case mixed with elements of memoir and trendy cultural criticism.

  • This is an astonishing book: circuitous yet taut with suspense, layered yet gripping. Cooper is one hell of a detective, chasing a long-buried murder mystery not only to the victim and her killer, but to the very core of how we understand one another. Most remarkable is how contemporary and vital every bit of questioning Cooper does here feels. Jane Britton died decades ago, but in Cooper's hands, Britton's tragic murder teaches us about ourselves and the dangers of the institutions we uphold.
