Wanted to read the book because although it's her latest, it is the beginning of Anna Pigeon's career as dectective.

I found the conclusion unsatisfactory. Her portrayal of characters' reaction to events lead me to believe one person was the killer. At the end, she narrates an entirely different person as the killer. Almost like she changed her mind.

Anna's willingness to go rock-climbing was too accommadating.

Good amount of tension.
Anna's assuming responsibility for her husband's death resolved.

touch of irony -- pg. 168 John Wayne wasn't John Wayne. He was just an author.
Issue -- women as victums -- especially rape
