This book grabbed and held my attention. It has all the ingredients of a mystery that I love -- more than one mystery to be solved, complex characters, unexpected situations, and discussions of high finance and journalism ethics to boot! There are a few parts of the story that I'm still pondering -- there's an act of graphic sexual violence in the middle that is perhaps meant to develop a character, but didn't have the payoff in development that I would expect from such a heavy plot bomb, and I'm not sure what I learned about the character that I wouldn't have earlier.

All-in-all, a good read, a quick read, and a read that has convinced me to find the second book in the series very soon.
