Riveting murder mystery based on the psychological states of all the characters. Does the past continuously impact the present? Yes, indeed.
p.11: "Only teenagers think boring is bad. Adults, grown men and women who've been around the block a few times, know that boring is a gift straight from God. Life has more than enough excitement up its sleeve, ready to hit you with as soon as you're not looking, without you adding to the drama."

p.85: "Everything that stops us being animals is eroding, washing away like sand, going and gone. The final step into feral is murder. We stand between that and you. We say, when no one else will, There are rules here. There are limits. There are boundaries that don't move."

p.157: "Over time, the ghosts of things that happened start to turn distant; once they've cut you a couple of million times, their edges blunt on your scar tissue, they wear thin. The ones that slice like razors forever are the ghosts of things that never got the chance to happen."
