The first thing that grabbed me was the main character. A lifelong criminal, we meet him the day he is released from prison after a 10 year stint for bank robbing. But he is also one of the rarest of men who, having faced his many failures, has the courage to change. He doesn't expect to be forgiven. He only wants to do the right thing.
Crais develops an outstanding supporting cast as well. Good and bad police and FBI special agents and a complicated mystery make finding the truth impossible for a former con without help. So he turns to the most unlikely source to help, the former FBI agent who arrested him 10 years earlier.
The story is equally engaging. You should read the summary, but let me assure you there is so much more to the story. The depth of character, emotion and relationships make this a wonderful experience.

A few of the characters are well acted by the narrator but the book teeters between interesting detail and trite repetition. Not much humor, either, and the suspense is mediocre compared to other Crais books. The romance part was a stretch and it's fraught with stereotypes throughout. I listened to it straight on through over 2 nights and overall was disappointed. (sigh)
