Published: Flatiron Books - August 3rd, 2021

McConaghy's new novel is as deep and beautiful as her spectacular previous book, Migrations. Continuing with the theme of the natural world and environmental jeopardy (subjects at which the author excels), Once There Were Wolves focuses on one woman's attempt to reintroduce the predators into a remote mountainous region in Scotland in an effort to rewild the landscape. This richly textured and page-turning novel includes a twin sister whose past trauma has rendered her speechless, sinister elements who are eager to thwart the wolf project, a dead man, and an inscrutable police chief. I hungrily devoured every page. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds

You won't be able to turn the pages quick enough! This mystery has it all, smart, twisty, atmospheric. Set in the old world academic setting of Cambridge University, amidst an elite society based on the Greek Tragedies, will fiction get muddled with truth? Michaelides has written yet another truly stunning novel. I will be highly recommending to all. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

I was blown away by this fast paced psychological mystery. When a famous artist is convicted of killing her husband and sent to a secure psychiatric unit called The Grove, we meet her through the eyes of her psychologist as he tries to help her find her voice again. She, Alicia, has not spoken a word since being found after the apparent murder suicide, but if he's successful, what exactly will she have to say? I highly recommend it! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Published: Grove Press - January 18th, 1994

Madness and melancholy await a small group of "friends" who stalk another at a sleepy, limbo-like resort, their strange desire to bring her into their group, for reasons unknown, leaves you just as manically enticed as bewildered. In sheer Duras fashion, the reader is left to surmise the goings on whilst slowly becoming a part of whatever psyco-fever has plagued the guests. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
