Review Quote*"Pötzsch effectively conjures up an atmosphere of claustrophobia and paranoia . . . . The tension, as the Kuisl family finds itself in the midst of the hunt, is palpable, leading to a cleverly clued solution." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "The setup is delicious . . . good fun overall." -- Kirkus  Reviews
