The epilogue captured what I really liked about this book. At the end, Priest warned against writing her to explain how she'd gotten Seattle history all wrong. She knew she's done it all wrong.
I was impressed how well she actually knew Seattle history, to the point of using a Sanborn map (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanborn_...
) to help develop her plot. She actually took Seattle history, dumped it out on the floor and remixed it. That's wonderful.
The plot/characters/action is good too. Very filmesque, and that isn't an insult, just saying it fits into a particular box.
