"A thumping good read, a real creep-fest."
"The Killing Circle is the best of a quartet of outstanding mystery-thriller novels by Andrew Pyper. A riveting prologue, impossible to put down, quickens the beat and leaves you with a twist in the pit of your gut. The twist weaves you through the story of fear, panic and resignation and it drives you onward, page by page, to the conclusion... a challenging and compulsive read that clearly demonstrates Andrew Pyper as a unique storyteller on the Canadian scene."
"Rising star [Pyper] doesn't disappoint in [this] fast-paced, funny thriller. A terrific ride of a mystery...the story hurtles along. Pyper is so good at dropping clues. The thing is, he's also good at introducing so many twists that you'd swear his plot was inspired by a bowl of rotini."
"Extraordinary...Powered by an ingeniously nonlinear narrative and suffused with a tone thick with dread, this is easily Pyper's most ambitious — and absorbing — work to date."
—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Very smart, very scary, very good: once I started I couldn't stop. Fans of dark and witty suspense will love The Killing Circle."
—Peter Abrahams, author of Oblivion and End of Story
"Few are better at conveying an omnipresent sense of dread and horror bubbling just beneath life's seemingly mundane routines. The Killing Circle will keep you up one night reading and another four checking the locks on the doors."
“If Andrew Pyper scripted our collective nightmares, we’d all be dreaming and screaming like the narrator of his gorgeously written and thoroughly unnerving suspense thriller…. This is a terrific yarn.”
—The New York Times
“This is one great read: darkly lyrical and atmospheric, it's as haunting as it is gripping. Highly recommended.”
“Frightening and action-packed.”
—Los Angeles Times
“Spookily terrific...Great suspense and a great story. ”
—Winnipeg Free Press
