From the beginning to the end I was captivated by this novel with its beautifully written yet tragic story of Elizabeth Gould. Page after page I was drawn further into Eliza's life so creatively developing a pseudo friendship between reader and character.

While my outlook might be a bit jaundiced I am over protagonists with almost super human powers on which the whole plot rests. Apart from that they all seem to come with an antisocial approach to most things including superiors and others around them. The chip on their shoulder seems commensurate with the magnitude of their super human power. In Amos' case this is his incredible memory. On the whole there were too many characters too much was unbelievable too many bodies. But I did stick with it to the end. Maybe a 3-star review for this one.

Too many characters too many deaths. Easy to read but most characters not well-rounded and some people and events were not convincing eg Natty's turnabout in his attitude to Amos the fact that Mary Lancaster was still working as a detective with early onset dementia and Melvin Mars working on a case as an impostor.

The superficial elements annoyed me eg emphasis on the size of detectives and vulgar displays of wealth and the scope of the violence in Burlington two families and a school as well as the body count during the course of the current story.

I found it interesting that both Amos and Mary suffered from brain issues with Amos having a particularly interesting set of symptoms which seemed to drive many of his decisions.
I always enjoy finding out about the families of detectives eg the loss of Cassie and Molly for Amos his relationship with Alex Jamison and the way having Sandy to deal with impacted on the lives of Mary and Earl Lancaster. However mostly the characters appeared and disappeared without readers having the opportunity to see them as complex personalities.
Grisham's latest novel addresses a similar issue - righting past injustices.

A well written personal account of an Ozzie man's determination to fulfil his dream. Persistent in the face of bureaucratic nonsense & always aware of the beauty of family & the environment Warren rescues a wrecked boat a story in itself & starts his own trochus shell business navigating a pub crawl through a town full of characters
while coping with mystery & intrigue. This terrific tome deserves a mini-series at least a dramatic long term season to do it justice!

After spending fourteen years lost to both the fae and mortal worlds only to be dragged back into Faerie by the murder of someone close to her October 'Toby' Daye really just wants to spend a little time getting her footing. She's putting her life back together. Unfortunately this means going back to work for Duke Sylvester Torquill of Shadowed Hills doing her duty as a knight errant. That isn't the sort of thing that exactly lends itself to a quiet existence and before she knows it Toby's back on the road heading for the County of Tamed Lightning in Fremont California to check on Sylvester's niece January.
