"Sharp characterization and surefooted plotting." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is an excellent mystery novel, written with a certain literary flair that elevates it above the usual cop-versus-ex-con yarn." (Booklist)
This book is much more satisfying than your typical detective/mystery story. While all the elements of suspense are there, the 2 main characters are deep and thoughtfully drawn, and make the story enjoyable. There are some slow points, but overall it is an excellent book with good, clear narration.
This is definitely a great who done it. The characters are interesting with all their imperfections. A great plot with some good twists, and a satisfying ending. I'd recommend this for some entertaining listening.
This was a wonderful story, with real characters that tugged at my heart. I needed to constantly overlook the fact that the writing seems unnecessarily overdone -- the only reason it didn't get five stars from me.
