I loved the main core characters, but the bad guys were cardboard caricatures, so we didn't get to know or understand them, and when it finally became time to solve the who-done-it, I was kind of lost. The loose ends were tied up very abruptly, and I was left more confused than satisfied. There had been various parties fighting over Davie, the kidnapped brother of the first-person protagonist, Tyler. They had different motives and various people ended up dead, and I got confused on who had been working with whom and why and who killed whom. And, the revelations in the last couple of pages should have made a bigger impact on Tyler than they seemed to. Also, some of the decisions made and actions taken by various characters didn't seem very logical. The St. Claire gifts were interesting though.
