really liked it

I can't say this is a great book, but I found it to be compelling. Based on the real murder of Kitty Genovese in the early 60's, Jahn uses this setting to comment on bystanders and how everyone's lives are interconnected. Sure some of the themes are overplayed and obvious, but he weaves the lives together in a way that reminds one of the randomness of life and how we are all connected one way or another. If you like true mystery stories, this may not be for you, but if you are stuck on a long flight or basking on a beach and want what I call throw away* fiction, this may be for you.
* a book you can read, forget, and leave on the plane, but enjoyable in the moment,.
