really liked it

The prologue could have stood alone as a powerful short story. The book was very good, a complex plot and it gives a lot of Boston history (found out who Storrow Drive was named for). I would give it five stars but I thought it went on a little too long and by the end the main characters began to feel a bit flat, carictures of good and evil, and love scenes and romance are not his strengths. But a great book, overall.

Randi Reisfeld Loved this book -- especially the history learned, and characters I got to know. Glad you enjoyed
