“Genuinely suspenseful, remarkably original.”  Publishers Weekly

Salem Falls is one of those books you can’t put down. On every page there is a twist, a revelation, a surprise, a pay-off, placing it firmly in the category of Page-Turner — It has romance, heartbreak, mystery, spookiness, and even a good dose of moral dilemmas – everything a good novel needs.”  Ann Hood, Providence Journal

“A frothy brew of mystery, sex, and small-town secrets.”  People

“Gripping…. You’ll be riveted by this multilayered tale of small-town intrigue.”  Glamour

“Picoult has carved her own niche with her novels — one part romance, one part courtroom thriller, two parts social commentary…. She keep[s] the reader constantly guessing.”  The Dallas Morning News
