Editorial reviews (4 reviews)

A good psychological thriller ought to end with a crisp, clean twist. This ending is mashed potatoes.

You wouldn’t want to vacation with this monster — or sit on his cold examining table, but seeing him splayed out here on Koch’s pages is ghoulishly fascinating.

“The Dinner” had a multicourse structure: It was coarse and simple-minded but tough. “Summer House With Swimming Pool” is weaker and unhurried, rambling along with no particular destination.
