I've only listened - have not yet read it.
Spoiler - Harker's murder.
He's your 'every man'. No gimmicks, or frills. He sounds as if he's lived the story. It even sound like he actually may be from Chicago. His characterizations are dead on.
It made me sad. I can't imagine what it would be like to have a relative or partner go through what Nick did with Harker. I know he felt helpless; being in the dark with an illness that was unknown and untreatable, only to lose his lover to a murderer.
I know I have to, but I can't wait for number 6.
