Retired Denver Police homicide detective Jack Dolan discovers the bodies of two brutally beaten young men while riding on the trails near his mountain home.

Not much resolution

I'm conflicted, I found the plot very interesting and the characters are too. It's weird knowing basically from the get go who the murderer is, and the switching between 3rd and 1st person narrative is bothersome. But it's really the lack of resolution at the end that makes me not care for the story. It was so bad It encompassed my annoyance at the Native American stereotyping lol. Probably not a reread for me.

That was a strangely unusual story. You call that

I grabbed this book on a whim because the premise was very interesting. I'm glad I did.
This is a second chance at love story; an abstract look at a murder, almost reminiscent of My Neighbor Totoro, in that there's no violence, no hard fraught danger, but rather a slow telling of a set of circumstances; and, story of consequences that stay even after the day has passed.
Will I listen again? Definitely, though the why is just because it was such a strangely gentle tale that just is.
