I have read all of José Latour's books, and this may be his very best.

The classic Latour suspense and tension are there all the way through the story, but the structure of the book, moving back and forth through time and space puts it a step above his other other work.

He also manages to tell real, powerful and moving stories about his characters. I was so deeply connected and invested in them all that the climax moved me to tears.

Highly recommended.
