Danielle TrussoniDespite Nick's flaws, he succeeds in placing the intensity of male friendship at the heart of his story. The grief he and the other roadies feel is moving, as is his continuing loyalty to his dead friend. The reader's interest is snared and held by Nick's refusal to forget Rob's troubled life, his persistence in wondering how his friend could be driven to such violence…Nick doesn't answer the most interesting questions about Rob. What he does do, though—and remarkably well—is present a heartfelt picture of enduring friendship and inconsolable, debilitating grief, even if that grief is complicated by jaw-dropping revelations as the novel draws to a close.
