I have mixed feelings about this one--I'd really been looking forward to it, and I was disappointed, but I can't exactly pinpoint why.

I guess maybe I just feel that with such an interesting case, Goldman could have done more with it. It felt kind of disjointed, like he didn't choose a particular angle and stick with it, so it ended up reading like more of "first this happened, then that happened, then something else happened" kind of narrative.

It's a page-turner though, and worth reading if your expectations aren't too high.
