A tale with many different narrative threads that Mr Hamill managed to weave into quite a tapestry. All of the action takes place over a period of two days and is presented to the reader in bits and pieces from the perspective of the various players. As the story unfolds, the reader begins to see connections between these various people as they move inexorably to the climactic scene in which they all play a part. Mr Hamill has been one of this reader's favorite authors since discovering his novel, Snow in August. Mr Hamill makes the city of New York come alive and his experience as a journalist informs this novel, as many of the characters work for a fictional New York tabloid that is struggling to stay afloat. The characters were well drawn, the story was compelling and the way things came together at the end felt like a natural result of all that came before. A most satisfying read.
