Although the novel performed well, becoming a Sunday Times best seller[2] and featuring on The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2017,[3] critical reception was generally not as positive as it had been for her debut thriller. Several critics were confused by the plethora of characters (the story is told from the viewpoint of 11 characters) and the similarities of their voices.

In February 2017, before the book was first published, Variety reported that DreamWorks' parent Amblin Partners purchased the film rights, with La La Land's Marc Platt and Jared LeBoff proposed as producers.[4]
