** spoiler alert ** I picked this up while researching Lehane and couldn't put it down. I devoured it! I have mixed feelings about the end. My disbelief was so thoroughly suspended throughout the action -- which I think is Lehane's point, that we are so easy to delude -- but trusting that the author had a purpose with his let-down ending doesn't stop it from being a let-down ending. I feel like somebody popped my balloon.
