Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive?
Interesting. But not one of my favorites. Moved to slowly to hold my interest. Moved around in circles.

I had a hard time getting interested in the story and then it ended before I was ready!

I find that I don't care for this kind of book. It was well written, but just not my 'cup of tea'.
Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.
