Dekker's plot was incredible!! Just as I thought I had it figured out, he took me down another path, but I never once felt manipulated. Having lived in Long Beach, it was nice to hear the names of streets I traveled all the time. The characters and story were well thought out. This book is proof positive that excellent fiction can be written without all the foul language so many other author's stoop to in their feeble attempts to have characters express themselves forcibly. No gratuitously graphic scenes to be squeamish over. Not only is the plot brillant, but the creativity in the use of language is unequaled. All of this added layers of depth to the story and proved that the reader can create their own visual image that is just as vivid as any one gratuitiously graphic paragraph could paint. I can't wait to listen to the rest of Dekker's books. I couldn't stop listening to this book. Lamont's voices were wonderful and consistent throughout also. I'm off to order another Dekker book!

The overall storyline was filled with intrigue, and the twists and turns that every good mystery novel should have. I just couldn't get past the narrator not giving each character their own personality. I also had a hard time with the music at the end/beginning of each chapter. I feel that it interrupted the natural flow of the book.

they say books are better than the films. I have to agree. great book. fabulous ending
The story was interesting. The let downs were the music between chapters as it didn't fit the story at all. The other issue was that it was hard to tell the difference between characters. Otherwise a god book
