As usual authors these days spending years creating and developing characters and only what seems like a few minutes writing the ending. The characters and Las Vegas details are rich and engrossing as was the narration. But I would have very much enjoyed following Newell as he disappears into the desert. Unfortunately the book abuptly ends leaving everyone hanging. Perhaps a sequel in seven more years.
Since the entire premise of the book concerning what happened in the woods long ago remains totally unexplained and unresolved there was really no point of it being included in the book. The book should have been shortened by half and focused entirely on the present day murder.
