I had no idea what to expect when I opened this book, and now I'm glad for that. Many exceptional books get their energy from a unique and interesting setting: nuclear submarines (The Hunt for Red October), a desert planet (Dune), and now a municipal graveyard in Toronto. Beautiful writing, memorable characters, and a fast, compact storyline.
