    Good read

    From the opening page, sadness seems to permeate the story although you're not sure why you feel that way. At first you think that Bank is driven but as the plot unfolds you realize there is a darkness to him. The character development is insightful and the author's ability to have you feel that you are walking in the characters' shoes is refreshing. The only criticism I have is that the transitions between past and present are not always smooth and sometimes leaves you confused . While I liked The River Sorrow better, I would definitely recommend this book.

    This book has just the right 'feel'.

    This is one of those mysteries that you can curl up with on a long winters night. It is well crafted: the characters appear real enough so as to not interfere with a good story line. The dialogue is outstanding: the writer seems to have a knack for it; it lends to that overall feeling of realism. The relationship between Mack and Bank is well tended and avoids the cardboard cutout interaction that can so easily spoil a 'buddy' tale. The plot twists are also real enough as to keep things moving but don't detract from the books tone: one doesn't get the feeling of something contrived or formulaic. And, trust me, there are some unexpected turns that are as fascinating as they were suprising. Over the years I've read a lot of varieties of detective fiction and I find that even good writers lapse into mindless repetition of what has come before. This book, with it's well thought out plot, excellent characterization and dialogue and gritty reality will please most fans of the genre.
