KIRKUS REVIEWS
[Kelley Armstrong's] dispatches from this village filled with sinister secrets are going to be keeping her readers up well into the night.
LINWOOD BARCLAY
Impossible-to-put-down. . . . Bring on the next Cainsville volume, please.
SARAH WEINMAN
Kelley Armstrong has paranormal elements in her classic mysteries but there are no ghouls, ghosts, werewolves or fairies and that's why readers who loathe crossovers will love this series. [Deceptions is] smart, cleverly plotted and really well written and you don't have to ignore the vampires to get to the good stuff.
Margaret Cannon, THE GLOBE AND MAIL
Sometimes big, bad things really do come in small packages and no one is more adept at unwrapping them than she, making Deceptions a paranormal tale beautifully written and told.
PROVIDENCE JOURNAL
Fast-paced and engaging story...Those already hooked on the weird doings in Cainsville will have no reason to be disappointed here.
