Praise for Long Black Veil
“This is Boylan’s best book. It’s one of the most eloquent pleas for empathy and moral imagination I’ve ever encountered.
RICHARD RUSSO, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Nobody’s Fool
“In the tradition of Donna Tartt, Jennifer Finney Boylan has crafted a thriller that’s intellectual, existential, and compulsively readable. If change is the only constant in life, how much can a person reinvent himself and still be the same? Long after the last page is turned, you will be thinking about the nature of identity, the pull of the past, and whether you can ever outrun the person you used to be.

Jennifer Finney Boylan rewards her fans with a riveting whodunit.The plot shapeshifts along with the unforgettable characters–including a woman whose family could be dismantled by her long-buried secrets. All this is rendered in Jenny’s signature hilarious, wise and wise-assed prose. Bravo, Boylan, bring us another one!
