"Jones serves up grim details, building suspense slowly at first, then with an accelerating pace that will leave readers breathless for the nuanced finale." (Publishers Weekly)
...but that ain't all bad. I really enjoyed this complicated fare with a predictable ending. The writing was tight; the dialogue crisp; and the plot, while sporting many loopholes, still kept me interested. I've never heard of the author before, but definitely someone to watch for. A good listening experience.
The story was very good, but the narrator consistently pronounced the name of the local road as the "Shoekill" Expressway instead of the "Schoolkill" Expressway. Annoying considering how important the setting of Philadelphia is to the story....
