Sarah was meaningful, important, special, a woman worth knowing. Julia was trivial. Sarah deserved a better advocate, one not so self-absorbed.
She leaves breadcrumbs as good mystery writers should. Several reviews note this quality in Hoag's work. At one point i wanted to shake Kovac and point him in the right direction. It would be almost a spoiler to say his heart's desires were making it impossible for him to consider the impossible.
Plot is twisted and turned inside out again and again, moving between today and an event 20
Relationship between Kovac and Liska is a highlight of the story. And of course the weather is a minor character, it being winter in Minneapolis. Laughed out loud several times as Kovac responded to his neighbor's tacky lawn ornaments and Christmas lights.
I love it when and author can make me laugh with and cry with a character, a "tough but not so tough" cop.
Terrible waste of good listening time. I bot on Audible's recommendation and wish I could get my money back. If there is a Guiness Book of world records award for the use of the "f" word in one book this one would win. Perhaps the author succeeded in giving us a picture of Yorkshire in 1974 and if it was that awful then he did a good job, I guess. But I still want my money back.
