Of the three Ross books I've read, this was the strongest and shows the clearest exposition of sometime detective sometime lawyer Jack Ross who is again perambulating through the deserts of Nevada and the bustle of California in search of lost souls who desire to stay lost and be lost. As with other Jack Ross novels, there are hidden identities and mass confusion as to who is what. This novel shows a writer coming into his own voice, and of the three I've read I enjoyed this the most.
