„Many readers, preferring neatly tied-up plots, will be frustrated by the way Landay drops red herrings and possibly significant clues, but then leaves a surfeit of questions outstanding at the end of the book.“
J. Kingston Pierce reviews the novel Defending Jacob by William Landay at kirkusreviews.com.
„The ability to create original, even astonishing plots is not evenly bestowed on writers. Far too often, readers see what’s coming a mile away. But of late, I’ve devoured two novels that provide endings as brilliant, as shocking as any I can recall. One is Defending Jacob The other is Stephen King’s current bestseller, 11/22/63“
