couldn't stop listening

If Mark Twain was a dark soul this would be his style. I loved this story from beginning to end and could not let it go... The narrator is superior in defining each character with his/her own personality down to specific cadences and inflections, what you always hope for, but almost never get. The story is a veritable depiction of the parts detailed and makes you believe they must be real people. If you love a thriller where the good and bad guys are equally dynamic this is it.
