The Call Reviews
"The book gets under your skin, though. Murphy is cunning and thoughtful enough to give her story some unexpected curves, and as it unfolds, it gradually accrues substantial emotional depth
is Murphy's ability to invoke some very big themesresponsibility, guilt, revenge, the moral order of communitywithout tipping over into the heavy-handed or obvious." - The Washington Post
