Story seemed labored and pedantic at times. After such a loooong read, the ending was disappointing and too obvious set up for sequel. Though talented writer, Mr Iles has succumbed to the money go-round.

Greg Iles writes an excellent, attention holding story, but this series has become so depressing it makes me consider not reading any more of them. Tragedy abounds and the characters who should know better keep doing incredibly stupid, careless things which cause even more grief. The main character, Penn comes across as petulant and childish in this book when he has been imminently sensible and capable before. Considering the subject matter, I suppose the characters can't possibly win this one, but I found the book sad and frustrating, even though well written and the narration excellent. Not an experience I am anxious to repeat.
