Gerald BartellDark and gruesome as the plot's subjects may be, DeSilva never lets the work turn pretentious or entirely bleak. A polished, engaging raconteur, he spikes the tale with wisecracks and warms it with moments of genuine sentiment…DeSilva also populates Cliff Walk with appealing, offbeat characters, people you want to chat with over coffee or something stronger. With a reporter's gimlet eye, DeSilva winnows out their contradictions and vulnerabilities.
