»Even as Death of the Black-Haired Girl barrels along toward its melancholy conclusion, it explicates its characters’ hope that life is not completely random — «people always want their suffering to mean something,» as one character puts it — and their contradictory awareness of the dangers of religious certainty; their understanding that choices have moral consequences and that innocents frequently are tangled and hurt in the crossfire. The result is at once a Hawthorne-like allegory and a sure-footed psychological thriller.«
