Enjoyable book. Description Oddities.
Enjoyed the book, as I have most of Margolin's offerings. Having grown up in Oregon, it is fun to feel connected to the locale. I'm always surprised, though, that authors who utilize hometown locations don't insist on the narrator correctly pronouncing them! "Willamette" is always a problem in the Margolin books.
I also found it a bit baffling that the description from the publisher names one of the main characters as Tom McCorkle. In the book, his name is Tim Kerrigan. Also described is "The Courthouse Athletic Club," which becomes "The Vaughn Street Glee Club" in the story. I guess the descriptive copy was written and submitted before the final edited manuscript. And the intriguing final tease . . . "And is it possible that their power and influence reaches all the way to the presidency?" is enticing copy, but (not wanting to give anything away) seems also to have been writen before final manuscript.
Still, I like the Jaffe Father-daughter characters. Hope to see them again.
