What would you do to save your child? Your wife? Your soul?

Boston District Attorney Will Sullivan dreams of becoming the next governor of Massachusetts. With his beautiful wife, Joanna, and adorable daughter, Sydney, Will seems destined for greatness…until Sydney becomes seriously ill. Now both parents resolve to do anything to save their daughter’s life.

But in the twilight world of Briarwood Medical Center, nothing is as it seems.

When Sydney’s health miraculously improves, Will suspects that Joanna has made a terrible bargain to save their child. Now Will must face a powerful, unknown evil before he loses…everything.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Creepy and Disturbing 13 de mayo de 2008
Por Linda Burkins - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Will is a charismatic Massachusetts politician bound for the Governor's Mansion. His beautiful wife Joanna endured horrible abuse as a child but seems to have put it all behind her, reveling in her role as passionate wife and devoted mother. The family leads the perfect, charmed life - until their beloved daughter Sydney is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Not surprisingly, Will and Joanna vow to do absolutely anything to save their child. When a mysterious hospital counselor offers them a way to do exactly that, they're both faced with a soul-shattering choice.

Alexandra Sokoloff interweaves scenes of everyday life with eerie, disquieting images, creating a mounting sense of dread. This is a classic spooky story - loaded not with gore and bloodshed, but instead with surreal nightmarish encounters and a plot that plays on every parent's worst fear. Sokoloff's ability to suffuse the ordinary with an aura of understated horror reminds me of Shirley Jackson.

I thoroughly enjoyed THE PRICE - okay, maybe enjoyed is the wrong word. I was thoroughly disturbed by this creepy tale of terror and look forward to reading more by Ms. Sokoloff in the future.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas a creepy, fast-paced read 5 de marzo de 2008
Por weathered1 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I'm always on the lookout for novels that are truly scary without having to resort to unnecessary gore. I happened upon Alexandra Sokoloff's first novel The Harrowing, and it was exactly the kind of read that I was looking for, and I instantly became a fan of hers. I picked up The Price the day it was released, and once again, Ms. Sokoloff has shown readers how truly adept she is at creating atmospheric thrillers. The pace was fast and well-plotted, and the character development of Will Sullivan was very well done - readers are made privy to his thoughts and fears, making him a protagonist that is easy to care about. The story itself was disturbing and never predictable, and when the novel ended, it did so in a manner fully in-keeping with the overall menacing mood of the piece.

The Harrowing was an impressive debut, and The Price illustrates quite well that Ms. Sokoloff is an exceedingly talented author who is a welcome addition to the worlds of horror, suspense, and psychological thrillers.

Por Sucre - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I loved Sokoloff's first novel for its crisp, foreboding style and smart, realistic characters. Her writing is so much more focused and fresh in comparison to most other horror writers. She's outdone herself with her new book, which is even better and richer. If you've always thought of hospitals as creepy places with their own dark soul, you won't want to miss this. It's a fast, fun, frightening read and highly recommended.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas No Price Too High 22 de julio de 2008
Por James Goodman - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
This was a great book. Intense, heart-wrenching, fast-paced and thought provoking, it had all the elements to make a truly remarkable thriller. Ms. Sokoloff managed to write a truly frightening tale without the use of gore. I recommend The Price to anyone who enjoys reading. No, I didn't forget to add a genre (or any other word for that matter) on the end of that sentence. There's something for everyone within these pages.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas supernatural suspense 10 de abril de 2012
Por Scott Nicholson - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
Alexandra Sokoloff writes with a cinematic visual flair but also delves deep into the psychological and emotional tunnels of the soul. The Price is a chilling exploration of how far we will go to protect those we love, or perhaps to protect what we think we should care about most. Highly recommended.
